Johannesburg - Mohammed Adams, accused of trying to abduct a Florida pupil, appeared briefly in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Monday.

His trial was postponed to May 23 to enable a prosecutor who handled his case to be present in court.

Adams, 21, wearing a black shirt, a pair of black trousers and a cream white jacket, covered his face with a scarf, exposing only his eyes and nose when he walked out of the court building.

He walked hand in hand with a woman who also covered her head.

Adams yelled insults to photographers who were taking his pictures as his white Audi passed by.

It has been alleged that Adams tried to abduct the Grade 10 teen outside Hoërskool Die Burger, west of Johannesburg, on October 19.

The school is the same one where Louise de Waal, 16, was abducted on October 12. Her burnt body was found on a farm in Magaliesburg later that day.

    I have personally seen a person falsely get convicted of rape due to a judge, a victim of rape herself, finding empathy with the false 'victim'. I find these sort of cases higly sensitive. At this point in time the only evidence against the man is the pointing out of the suspect in an identity parade. Should he truly be guilty then he should thank his lucky stars this was only an "attempted" abduction and face the time his given in the 'comfort' of his cellmates. If he is innocent then one hopes he is able to ovecome the mental stress cell time involves.
