JOHANNESBURG - The Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday heard that Bryce Moon's murder charges were reinstated.
This is because he did not pay for the funeral of the woman he allegedly knocked over and killed.
The Golden Arrows soccer player is applying to have charges against him withdrawn.
He has been accused of drunk driving and murder after knocking down Mavis Ncube on Katherine Road in Sandton, northern Johannesburg in 2009 when he came back from a Confederations Cup celebration.
Moon's lawyer Naren Sangham accused the employers of the deceased of fabricating evidence to have charges against his client reinstated.
Sangham said it is obvious that they were trying to initiate some kind of compensation.
He said this is because the domestic worker's family was expecting hospital and funeral costs to be paid for.
He said the statements provided by the state are unreliable.
