Cape Town - Judgment in the bail application of three men accused of carrying out a hit on top advocate Pete Mihalik is expected to be delivered in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday afternoon.
Sizwe Biyela, 26, Nkosinathi Khumalo, 31, from Kwazulu-Natal, and taxi business owner Vuyile Maliti, 35, were expected to appear in court 16 at 11am, but postponements of other matters had not been concluded by lunchtime.
The courtroom was packed, with some journalists forced to sit on the floor. Security was also tight with police frisking people and searching handbags before they were allowed to enter
The three accused are being kept in different prisons for their own safety.
Mihalik, 50, was shot in the head at point-blank range on the morning of October 31 last year as he dropped his children off at their private Reddam House school in Green Point.
