Babita Deokaran murder trial postponed

Johannesburg – The National Prosecuting Authority says it’s not yet ready to go on trial in the murder case of health department official, Babita Deokaran.

The six suspects linked to Deokaran’s death appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday morning.

The matter has been postponed to 2 November due to technical issues.

The NPA said investigations are still underway.

“We are ready to proceed with the bail application but we are not trial-ready. Investigations are still ongoing. Justice rushed may be justice obscured… we have to make sure that justice is served,” said the NPA’s Phindi Louw Mjonondwane.
