Memories, opinions of Rohde’s colleague 'cannot be relied upon' - defence
he testimony of the man who tried to resuscitate the wife of Jason Rohde in 2016 cannot be relied upon because he failed to see what was in front of him and his memory had faded, the Western Cape High Court heard on Tuesday.
Rohde's defence lawyer Pete Mihalik also felt little value could be placed on the testimony of the State's first witness, Mark Thompson, because he was not an expert.
Thompson, an operations manager at Lew Geffen Sotheby's International Realty, had earlier testified about performing CPR on Susan Rohde in the bathroom of the couple's hotel room at Spier Wine Farm, on July 24, 2016.
He shared several observations about the state of her body, the cord against the bathroom door and how he found her on the floor.
Jason Rohde's 'mistress' could testify for State
The woman who property mogul Jason Rohde admitted to having an affair with, is set to testify for the prosecution, it was revealed on Tuesday.
Jolene Alterskye was included in a list of State witnesses that was handed up in the Western Cape High Court, to add to the summary of substantial facts and to support the charges of murder and defeating/obstructing the ends of justice.
Rohde had pleaded not guilty to the charges on Monday.
In his plea explanation, the father of three daughters admitted to an extramarital affair with his fellow colleague - something he said he was not proud of.
Rohde's colleague unsettled by what he saw as he gave Susan CPR
A colleague of murder-accused Jason Rohde tried to resuscitate his wife Susan at the Spier Wine Farm, but felt uneasy after noticing several things which did not add up at the crime scene, he told the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday.
Mark Thompson, an operations manager at Lew Geffen Sotheby's International Realty, was called as the State's first witness.
Thompson, who was dressed in a black suit and light blue tie, said he knew Jason for about seven years.
Thompson, Rohde and his wife had attended their annual conference at the wine farm at the end of July 2016.
