Bredasdorp community unites

2013-02-11 09:22

The Bredasdorp community and other organisations have now joined hands in a bid to put the spotlight on women abuse. Watch. WATCH

Cape Town - The Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court was deliberating on Monday on whether to allow the media to take photos of Anene Booysen's alleged killer.

Prosecutor Maria Marshall told the court that she did not want the face of the accused to be shown in any television broadcast or newspaper report. She did not mind if his body was shown.

Magistrate Graham Cupido asked if she had a specific reason for this request.

She replied that the case was still in the early stages of investigation and could be jeopardised because they were gathering statements.

Cupido called the relevant media houses to his chambers to present their arguments in favour of taking photos.

The case was briefly adjourned.

The 17-year-old was found reportedly disembowelled at a construction site last week Saturday and later died from her injuries. She was buried in the rural town, about 180km from Cape Town, at the weekend.

The crimes sparked outrage from all sectors of society, including President Jacob Zuma. Reporters and cameramen jostled for a space and took up half of the small court room.
