‘No bail for ruthless killer’, insists family

2011-04-01 00:00

TWENTY-YEAR-OLD Sherwin Cara of Northdale, who is charged in connection with the death of cricketer Juran “Lorenzo” Raman (21) at the Cafe Vacca Matta nightclub at the weekend, will remain in custody for seven days pending further police investigations.

Cara made a fleeting appearance before a packed public gallery in the magistrate’s court yesterday before magistrate Bessie du Preez, and he was not asked to enter a plea. His advocate, Martin Krog, did not oppose the state’s request that he be remanded in custody pending his next appearance on April 7.

Raman’s mother, Lolly, could not attend the hearing as she was too traumatised, said one of her sisters, Pam Peters. Family members carried placards proclaiming; “No bail for a ruthless killer”, and “We want justice”.

Cara surrendered to police on Wednesday.

The alleged stabbing occurred on the dance floor of the nightclub at the Golden Horse Casino.

Raman died at St Anne’s hospital on Sunday morning.

The motive is still unclear.
