Pretoria - Journalists and members of the public have been asked to leave the North Gauteng High Court for the duration of the 8-year-old girl's testimony of what Nicholas Ninow did to her in the bathroom stall of the Dros restaurant.
At the start of the proceedings on the third day of the trial, Judge Papi Mosopa asked members of the gallery to excuse themselves for the duration of the girl's testimony.
Mosopa thanked the media for respecting testifying witnesses wish to remain anonymous.
He did, however, explain that the testimony of the child would be heard 'In-camera', with the media not allowed to publish the girl's name or any of what she was to inform the court.
Taking into consideration that she was a minor, Mosopa also asked the media to leave, save for Ninow's grandmother and mother who were in attendance.
