Leader of the Optimistic Bikers against Abuse, Celeste Louw says they are working hard to ensure that top banker accused of killing his estranged wife in Alberton, Enzo Pietropaolo, does not get bail.
Pietropaolo is accused of shooting his wife, Manuela, nine times in November 2017.
He was expected to apply for bail in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court on Monday morning.
Louw says Pietropaolo is a dangerous man and a flight risk. She says there are also speculations that he killed his father.
It is a very important this for us that we make a big noise about this kind of cases because if the community doesn't stand up, then we not going to get these kinds of cases tried.— Celeste Louw, Leader of the Optimistic Bikers against Abuse
We need to stop this kind of behaviour and in order to stop this we need to bring it into the light.— Celeste Louw, Leader of the Optimistic Bikers against Abuse
Louw says four different organisations have come together, draw up a petition for the courts to deny Pietropaolo's bail.
They are trying to get as many signatures as possible to be presented to the courts after the bail hearing, she says.
