The case against three police officers accused of killing Nathaniel Julies has been adjourned until the 15th of this month. It is also assumed that the accused will present new reasons for the accusation against them.
The three police officers appeared in the Supreme Court at Palm Ridge District Court, east of Johannesburg. 16-year-old Julies, who had Down syndrome, was thought to have been shot by a police officer just meters from his home in Eldorado Park in 2020.
Nathaniel Julies’ murder trial is set to resume after Judge Ramarumo Monama resigned earlier this year. A pre-trial hearing was held in court on Friday – where several house affairs cases were settled between the prosecutor and the Defense Council of the three accused.
When the case resumes on the 15th of this month, the accused will have to confess and the court will also consider part of their confessions.
All those who have already testified at the first trial must be summoned to appear and testify again. Scorpion Ndyalvane, Caylene Whiteboy and Voster Netshiongolo have been charged with the murder of Julies and their bail has been extended.
