Deokaran murder case postponed to 18 November


JOHANNESBURG - The case against six men charged with the murder of health whistleblower Babita Deokaran has been postponed to 18 November.

She was gunned down outside her home in 2021.

The matter was initially postponed, as the defence team had apparently not been paid.

The accused now have new legal representatives who need to familiarise themselves with the case.
