Kidnapped Zephany Nurse's testimony to be held in camera
She will take the stand during sentencing proceedings against the woman convicted of abducting her.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Judge President John Hlophe has ordered Zephany Nurse's testimony will be held in camera.
The 19-year-old will take the stand during sentencing proceedings against the woman convicted of abducting her.
A Lavender Hill woman was found guilty of snatching the three-day-old from her sleeping mother's arms at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1997.
The State has indicated it is in possession of the probation officer's report and victim impact reports for Nurse and her biological parents.
The court has granted the prosecution's request to keep those reports out of the media and private.
The judge has also agreed that Nurse's testimony should be heard in camera, without the media and public gallery present.
Defence attorney Reaz Khan has told the court he needs more time, because he only received the conviction judgment this morning.
The matter has been postponed until August.
LISTEN: Zephany Nurse sentencing postponed to August.
