Sentencing proceedings in Zephany Nurse case postponed
The convicted kidnapper will remain behind bars until 1 August while various reports are finalised.
CAPE TOWN - Sentencing proceedings for a woman convicted of kidnapping Zephany Nurse have been postponed.
The defence has requested more time to finalise various reports.
The convicted kidnapper will remain behind bars until 1 August.
Her lawyer Reaz Khan has requested sentencing proceedings be delayed as various reports have to be finalised.
Although the state reiterated it's ready to proceed today, it agreed to postpone the matter until August.
The state said it would be bringing highly sensitive information before the court and the media will not be allowed in the courtroom.
Judge John Hlophe reiterated nobody will be allowed into the court as the matter will be heard in-camera.
The convicted kidnapper looked straight ahead of her as she stood in the dock.
A faint smile appeared on her face as her family members and friends in the public gallery screamed that they love her.
