Ratte case postponed

2010-11-30 12:21

Right-winger Willem Ratte’s court case was postponed in the Witbank Magistrate’s Court today, according to his attorney, Vivien de Klerk.

“His case was postponed to January 27 2011 for further investigation.”

This would allow the state to conclude its investigation.

“It was quick in and quick out, as expected. There was no legal argument.”

All the accused had their bail extended.

They were arrested during a police raid on Ratte’s Balmoral, Mpumalanga, farm in September. They face charges of illegal possession of dagga, unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

De Klerk said Ratte was in good health and very positive.

“He insists that there is no reason for him to be charged.”
