O’Sullivan jets off to the UK to attend his daughter's 10th birthday celebration
Private investigator Paul O'Sullivan is expected to board a plane to London today.
JOHANNESBURG - Private investigator Paul O'Sullivan is expected to board a plane to London today after the Kempton Park Magistrates Court relaxed his bail conditions allowing him to travel to celebrate his daughter's tenth birthday.
O'Sullivan was arrested at OR Tambo International Airport in April, shortly after boarding a plane bound for the United Kingdom with his family.
He was found in possession of three passports and charged with contravening the South African Citizenship Act.
The private investigator will spend the next week in London with his family and will only return to South Africa next Friday.
When he was granted bail of R20,000 two months ago, one of the strict conditions was that he was not allowed to exit South Africa while his trial was underway.
But yesterday, Magistrate Wynand Nel granted him permission to travel to the UK to celebrate his daughter's tenth birthday.
The case was then postponed because a State witness who works at the airport called in sick.
The private investigator's trial is expected back in the dock early next month.
