Nimmerhoudt maintains he's being framed.

The Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court is expected to deliver a verdict on his application for discharge.

It was a brief appearance for Bruce Nimmerhoudt. 

The Patriotic Alliance's West Rand leader has been on trial since July on charges of terrorism and inciting public violence. The state has now closed its case. 

Without wasting any time, Nimmerhoudt's lawyer launched a discharge application.

The state maintains Nimmerhoudt has a case to answer for.

Nimmerhoudt will be back in court on Friday.
