Johannesburg - Judgment in the case involving former UK bank investment manager Shumsheer Singh Ghumman, was postponed on Monday to February 20.

Ghumman had pleaded guilty in the Cape Town Regional Court to a charge of malicious damage to property, but not guilty to charges of fraud, incitement to commit murder and attempted murder.

The case stems from an obsession that he developed in the UK with British public relations executive Hannah Rhind, and his actions against her father, Philip Rhind, living in Clifton, a suburb of Cape Town, for trying to stop the friendship.

It is alleged that Ghumman followed the daughter when she went home to her parents for Christmas last year.

On the fraud charge, he is alleged to have falsely informed the news agency Westcape News that he was a freelance photo-journalist, and thus persuaded the agency to set up interviews for him in Cape Town with dangerous criminals.

On the incitement charge, he is alleged to have incited convicted criminal Alfred Yalezo to murder Philip Rhind.

The attempted murder and malicious damage charges relate to a petrol bomb that he hurled at the Rhind home.

Ghumman appeared before Magistrate Herman Pieters, who said he had been unable to finish the judgment but that it would be delivered on February 20.
