ICYMI:

Rohde pathologist still off sick, trial postponed

The Western Cape High Court trial of property mogul Jason Rohde was postponed on Monday because the State’s forensic pathologist, who was supposed to be cross-examined, was too ill to testify.

Last Monday, the trial was postponed for a week because the pathologist, Dr Akmal Coetzee-Khan, was ill and could not attend court.

However, when the case resumed on Monday, it emerged that Coetzee-Khan was still ill.

Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe confirmed that she had received a medical certificate and that Coetzee-Khan would only be fit to resume cross-examination on November 20.
