The bail application of former rugby player Zane Kilian, who is accused of the murder of Anti-Gang Unit detective Charl Kinnear, has been transferred to another court amid safety concerns.

The case was postponed a few times so authorities could find a court safe enough for the application. 

The matter will now be heard in the Bellville Regional Court over multiple days - 26, 27 and 30 October.

Kilian's brief appearance on Wednesday was again marked by heavy police cover.

At his last appearance he denied murdering Kinnear.

In a submission by his lawyer, he said any surveillance he did was legal and in the line of private investigation work he is registered to do.

Kinnear was shot outside his house on Friday 18 September. 

Kilian was arrested in Springs, Gauteng, on 21 September. 

He faces charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and the illegal interception of communications.
