Media barred from accessing personal docs in Zephany Nurse case
The state has indicated it will bring an application to prevent reporters from accessing the documents.
The state yesterday indicated it will bring an application to prevent reporters from accessing these documents when the case continues in the Western Cape High court in August.
The Lavender Hill woman, who raised Nurse as her own for more than 17 years, was earlier this year found guilty of kidnapping her when she was an infant in the late 1990s.

Western Cape Judge President John Hlope has ordered that Nurse's testimony be heard in-camera when she takes to the stand in aggravation of sentence later this year.
The state says it has received the probation officer's report as well as victim impact reports for Nurse and her biological parents.
These documents will also not be made public.
The National Prosecuting Authority's Eric Ntabazalila says, "Her testimony will be in-camera, simply because of the sensitivity around the case. There are about four reports which will be tabled in court and will not be shared with the public because of the deep personal stuff contained in them."
Sentencing proceedings will resume in August.
