Decision on Timol accused trial


The high court in Johannesbu­rg will pass judgment on Friday on whether the former security policeman implicated in the murder of anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol in 1971, Joao Rodrigues‚ should be prosecuted.

The full bench of the high court will pass judgment in the applicatio­n for a permanent stay of prosecutio­n that was brought by Rodrigues late last year.

If the permanent stay of prosecutio­n is not granted‚ the trial is set to begin on June 28.
