Henning psychologist 'under surveillance'
Johannesburg - The bail hearing of Chanelle Henning murder accused and former police officer Andre Gouws has been postponed to next week, the Pretoria News reported on Wednesday.
The Pretoria Magistrate's Court heard on Tuesday that Gouws, one of five men accused of killing Henning, had the offices of a psychologist appointed to evaluate Chanelle, her husband Nico and their child under surveillance.
Gouws’s lawyer, Anel Jacobs, told the court her client kept surveillance after he became worried about “outside influence”, which contravened a court order.
Jacobs said Gouws had compiled an affidavit on how the court order was contravened, the publication reported. It was unclear who instructed Gouws to keep watch on the offices.
Henning was shot dead by two men on a motorbike after dropping her son off at a nursery school in Faerie Glen on November 8 last year.
She and her husband were separated and involved in a custody battle over the boy.
Gouws’s bail application was postponed to February 15.
