Bronn murder case postponed
One of the suspects in the murder case is seeking a legal aid lawyer.
CAPE TOWN - More than a year and a half after Bruno Bronn's murder, the trial of three men accused of killing the Cape Town nightclub owner has been delayed once again.
Johan Frederick Coetzer, Fareez Allie and Achmat Toffa's trial was meant to start in the Western Cape High Court on Monday morning.
The 50-year-old was found dead on the floor of his Green Point home with his hands tied in February 2012.
Bronn owned popular nightclubs Navigaytion and Bronx.
According to the indictment, he was strangled and died due to suffocation.
It is not the first time the Western Cape High Court has heard the men accused of killing Bronn are not ready to stand trial.
One of them has a new attorney who has been given more time to prepare for the case while another accused must now be assigned a legal aid lawyer.
All of the suspects are out on bail, but Toffa recently spent time behind bars for two unrelated charges.
The accused are scheduled to appear in court in the middle of September and if there are not any further delays, their trial is set to finally start in early October.
The motive for the crime remains unknown.
