Cape Town - The director of public prosecutions (DPP) has ruled that swimming coach Tim Osrin will stand trial for the alleged assault and sexual assault of two women in Claremont.
Osrin made a brief appearance in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday when the court heard the DPP’s decision.
The assault case involving domestic worker Cynthia Joni and the sexual assault case, which relates to a sex worker, had been on the roll as separate matters.
When Osrin took the stand in January, the parties agreed to mediation under the auspices of the SA National Institute for Crime Prevention and the Reintegration of Offenders.
The programme entailed counselling sessions aimed at Osrin and Joni meeting to resolve the matter.
