EWN Reporter Shamiela Fisher says, today in court, they continued the cross-examination of investigating officer Charl Kinnear. She says Booysen's defence lawyer stated the there is not much evidence linking his client to the crimes.

He believes that there is not a lot of evidence linking his client or his co-accused to this matter. He basically said that he believed there are outside influences - police are being influenced by older factions, more specifically controversial businessman Mark Lifman.

Fisher says that Booysen's defence based their case on the fact that everything is based on hearsay and there is not real evidence against the accused.
