Jacobus Paulus Botha and Alice Botha, murdered 12 Feb 2010 Benoni - trial: 2 black male suspects postponed to April 16 2012 BECAUSE THERE WAS NO RESIDING JUDGE:
Daughter Alice Botha-Muller wrote previously: - DELMAS COURT Oct 2011: the start of the double murder trial of three black male suspects in the slaughter of my parents Jacobus Paulus Botha (Jack) and Alice Botha was postponed because there was no residing judge available. The trial is being held at court in Delmas, AND STARTED with three suspects. It was postponed to 16 April 2012 - but only with two suspects: the third man was dismissed because there was 'insufficient evidence' of his involvement.
The reason for the postponement was ridiculous: all the witnesses, the attorneys, the state prosecutors were on hand, and there was a judge a Mrs Karelse: but she was not the 'residing judge' - who was NOT at the trial. So the case was postponed again.
(Acting) Judge Karelse was merely there to postpone the case and to announce that the third suspect was free to go. The family has questions about the inaccurate death-certificate date and also about the 'poor police investigation' and will raise this with the authorities, she writes.
