Men in court for bouncer case next month

2012-10-22 11:38

Cape Town - The case of two men accused of running an unregistered bouncer company would resume in the Cape Town Regional Court next month, it was reported on Monday.

The Cape Times reported that Mark Lifman and Andre Naude would have until November 8 to decide whether to admit to aspects of the case.

They face about 300 charges related to the running of their company Specialised Protection Services (SPS) without being registered with the Private Security Regulatory Authority.

Lifman's lawyer William Booth said the admissions were formal and, if admitted to, would shorten court proceedings.

He told the newspaper these aspects were not necessarily in dispute.

"What is in dispute is my client's innocence to all these charges," he said.

SPS was launched last November in an amalgamation of two rival companies, one of which belonged to slain underworld figure Cyril Beeka. It was shut down in February.

    Why is William Booth always the lawyer in gang/fraud or underworld cases? Makes me wonder on which payrolls this ex-judge finds himself.

      Booth is one of the best lawyers around. Greatest chance of getting an innocent verdict in your favor. Know of a few cases were he got DUI charges dropped! Well either he is very good or our legal system is up to carrots. Either way, I have his number saved on my phone, you never know!

      LOL he prolly knnows how to duck and dive......better pay too. Seriously, this 'bouncer' stuff is at best scary. They tend to be a law unto themselves.

    State has failed dismally in securing a conviction but will persist nonetheless because it smacks of political interference!
