Lawyer Malesela Teffo granted R10 000 bail – SABC News

De Hillbrow Magistrate’s Court in Johannesburg, the defense lawyer in the Senzo Meyiwa murder case granted bail of R10 000.

Attorney Malesela Teffo will be back in the same court on May 27.

He was arrested on Thursday, following proceedings in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Attorney Teffo would presumably have failed to appear in an infringement case.

It is said that an arrest warrant was issued in January this year.

Attorney Teffo represents four of the accused in the Senzo Meyiwa trial.

So the magistrate read out the order.

“In view of the fact that this is the second time that the defendant has not appeared in this court and this is the second time that an arrest warrant has been authorized, issued and executed against the defendant, I am of the opinion that an amount of R10 000 is appropriate, reasonable and justifiable.The bail amount is then ordered by this court to stand at R10 000.

Meanwhile, National Police Commissioner Fannie Masemola has asked Gauteng Police Commissioner Elias Mawela to submit a report on Teffo’s arrest.
