Rohde Trial: Court hears Jason Rohde has been 'hospitalised'

Murder-accused Jason Rohde failed to appear at the Western Cape High Court on Monday because he had been hospitalised, his lawyers said.

However, the reasons for his hospitalisation have not been revealed.

In applying to have the case postponed, Rohde's lawyer advocate Pete Mihalik asked for the reasons for his admission to be kept confidential.

"We request that the reasons for hospitalisation be kept confidential and that the court uses its discretion," said Mihalik.

The State opposed the application.
