Bronx pre-trial postponed

2012-11-09 16:07

Cape Town - The pre-trial of four men accused of killing Cape Town gay nightclub owner Bruno Bronn was postponed by the Western Cape High Court on Friday.

The pre-trial was postponed because Judge President John Hlophe was not in court.

When the matter was called before Judge Robert Henney, senior State advocate Carine Teunissen said she had Hlophe's permission to have the pre-trial conference "rolled" to Monday.

The four are Johan Frederick Coetzer, 36, Fareez Allie, 29, Achmat Toffa, 35, and Kurt Erispe, 32.

They face charges of pre-meditated murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances. Both charges carry life sentences.

All except Toffa were released on bail. His bail was revoked for violating a bail condition which prohibited him from making contact with State witnesses.

Bronn, 49, was found dead on the floor of his home on Ocean View Drive in Sea Point with his hands tied in front of him on 7 Februar.

According to the indictment, he was strangled and died as a result of suffocation.

The document further stated that Bronn was threatened with a gun or overwhelmed by the men and then robbed.

The stolen items listed were a silver BMW 330, a laptop and carry bag, a Nokia cellphone, a briefcase containing documents, a flatscreen television set, a Tag Heuer watch and a number of perfume bottles.
