Apartheid-era cop Rodrigues showed 'no remorse' during Timol murder charge
Ahmed Timol's nephew Imtiaz Cajee has spoken of the apparent lack of remorse shown by the former police officer implicated in the murder of his uncle.
Joao Rodrigues appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s court on Monday, on charges of murder and defeating the ends of justice.
A few months ago the inquest into Timol's death found that the apartheid struggle hero had not committed suicide at John Vorster Square, where he was being interrogated in 1971.
A day filled with mixed emotions. I think the ultimate disappointment of the day was to see the smirk on Rodrigues' face after the court proceedings. Absolutely no remorse, smiling for the cameras...Imtiaz Cajee, nephew of Ahmed Timol
We look forward to the pre-trial date that has been set for the 18th of September, for the legal teams to agree on a date and for the matter to be heard at the High Court.Imtiaz Cajee, nephew of Ahmed Timol
Rodrigues has been granted R2,000 bail.
