'Mdluli postponement out of NPA's control'
The case has been postponed multiple times over the past 3 years.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says the latest postponement in Richard Mdluli's case is out of their hands.
The former police crime intelligence boss faces a string of charges including kidnapping, assault and intimidation related to the murder of his ex-lover's husband Oupa Ramogibe in February 1999.
The case was yesterday postponed in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court until early December.
The NPA has described its frustration at yet another delay in a case that has been postponed multiple times over the past three years.
Mdluli has to answer questions about his alleged involvement in the fatal shooting of Ramogibe in an apparent love triangle gone wrong.
The NPA's Phindi Louw says the process is moving too slowly.
"Unfortunately, the situation is out of our control. We sympathise with the families of the victims and with the victims. We know how frustrating this can be."
Dressed in a black suit, Mdluli showed little emotion during his brief appearance.
He will be back in court on 5 December.
