JOHANNESBURG – The High Court in Pretoria has denied a request by defense counsel Barrister Malesela Teffo in the Senzo Meyiwa trial for a special plea.

Teffo, who is the attorney for four of the defendants, filed the request Monday morning to respond to alleged confessions made by two of his clients.

Five men are currently in the dock and are on trial for the 2014 murder of Bafana Bafana captain.

Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela ruled that cross-examination by counsel for the fifth accused should be allowed to continue.
