CAPE TOWN - The lawyer representing one of the men accused of killing nightclub owner Bruno Bronn is fighting for his client to be released on bail following several delays.

Bronn was found murdered in his Green Point home in February. He had been tied up and had marks around his neck.

Achmat Toffa appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

He is the only suspect who has not been given bail after he allegedly interfered with a witness.

Earlier, Toffa's lawyer William Booth said he cross-examined the investigating officer.

"During cross-examination, it emerged that one of the state witnesses had lied. We are going to continue with the application during the course of Wednesday."

Booth said his client, Kurt Erispe, Johan Frederick Coetzee and Fareez Allie will return to court in two weeks.

"Previously, we had lodged an application to have the matter struck off the court roll, but it was dismissed."
