Bail conditions: Savoi cries foul

2011-08-02 00:00

AN investigator in the trial of Gaston Savoi was accused in court yesterday of being “malicious” by preventing Savoi from travelling to Angola on business last month despite a court order allowing this.

Savoi’s advocate, Francois van Zyl SC, told regional magistrate Chris van Vuuren they will be “taking the matter further”.

He said Savoi brought court applications in KZN and Kimberley for a relaxation of his bail conditions to enable him to fly to Angola from July 4 to 8 on business.

However, said Van Zyl, Colonel Clarence Jones told Savoi he would “block” him from travelling by circulating him as a “wanted” person, ensuring he would be arrested on his arrival in Angola, causing considerable loss to his business.
