Bloemfontein - The trial of one of four alleged rightwing plotters was postponed by the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

Martin Keevy, 49, of Bloemfontein, did not appear in court, and the matter was postponed in a magistrate’s chambers to 19 July.

Keevy was arrested with Hein Boonzaaier, 50, of Centurion; Johan Prinsloo, 49, of Naboomspruit; and Mark Trollip, 49, of Douglas, for allegedly planning to assassinate senior ANC leaders in Mangaung in December.

Keevy was admitted for a 30-day evaluation at the Free State Psychiatric Complex last month.

The report on his evaluation would only be available at his next court appearance in three weeks.

The men were arrested on 16 December 2012, the Day of Reconciliation, and also the first day of the ANC's national elective conference in Mangaung.

Magistrate Mziwonke Hinxa denied Trollip, Keevy, and Prinsloo bail in January.

Boonzaaier was granted R80 000 bail.

The case against Boonzaaier, Trollip, and Prinsloo was postponed to 23 August for further investigations.
