NPA welcomes court decision to release Henri Van Breda on bail

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says it's happy about the bail conditions given to triple murder accused, Henri van Breda.

Bail is not designed to be primitive. Attached to that bail, there are strict conditions. So, we are happy.

Eric Ntabazalila, NPA spokesperson

Ntabazalila says the NPA is satisfied it has a case against Breda, who is facing three murders, attempted murder and a charge of defeating the ends of justice.

Breda allegedly hacked his parents and older brother to death with an axe in their De Zalze home.

Earlier today, he was granted bail of R100 000, after appearing in the Stellenbosch Magistrate's Court.
