State witness in Paul O'Sullivan's trial calls in sick, trial postponed
O'Sullivan was arrested at the airport in April shortly after boarding a plane bound for the UK.
JOHANNESBURG - Private investigator Paul O'Sullivan's trial has been postponed in the Kempton Park Magistrates Court because a State witness from OR Tambo International Airport, who was supposed to give evidence today, called in sick.
O'Sullivan was arrested at the airport in April shortly after boarding a plane bound for the UK, with his family.
He was found in possession of three passports and charged with contravening the South African Citizenship Act.
The witness was supposed to take the stand today to explain exactly what happened when O'Sullivan was taken off a London-bound plane and arrested by the Hawks.
The official was also expected to give evidence regarding the South African Citizenship Act, of which O'Sullivan is accused of contravening.
The court has also relaxed O'Sullivan's bail conditions, allowing him to travel to London over the weekend for his daughter's tenth birthday.
