Meyiwa murder trial: Court dismisses Teffo’s special plea bid

Johannesburg – The judge in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial has dismissed advocate Malesela Teffo’s application for a special plea.

Teffo has been requesting a trial within a trial, arguing a couple of issues he says may affect his clients’ ability to receive a fair trial.

Among other are confessions he says were given under duress.

Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela said Teffo is jumping the gun, and now is not the time to address the alleged confessions since the state has not entered them into evidence.
