Bail application for Forest Hill pupil postponed to Monday
The 19-year-old pupil from Forest High School facing charges of murder and attempted murder will wait until Monday to hear the outcome of his bail application.
The grade 11 pupil is accused of stabbing three pupils at Forest High, in the south of Johannesburg, during a fight between two rival groups.
Eyewitness News reporter Robinson Nqola says the magistrate says he wants to look over what was presented to him.
The magistrate said he was also not pleased that there were material defects that were brought by the applicant in the matter.Robinson Nqola, Reporter, Eyewitness News
The state didn't oppose bail, and if it is granted, the pupil will have to go back to the school to write exams.
Parents are not happy about that. The magistrate asked the state, who chose not to oppose bail, to say: 'Did you guys interact with the parents and the school to find out if they will be fine with the idea of having the accused come back to the same school where he allegedly committed the crime?'Robinson Nqola, Reporter, Eyewitness News
