Timol family allowed to intervene in Rodrigues' stay of prosecution application
The South Gauteng High Court has granted permission for Ahmed Timol's family to intervene in former apartheid policeman Joao Rodrigues' bid for a permanent stay of prosecution.
Rodrigues faces a murder charge in the case of anti-apartheid activist Timol. He wants the court to halt the case against him because he is too old to stand trial.
Timol was killed in police custody in 1971.
Joanne Joseph spoke to Timol's nephew, Imtiaz Cajeeh for an update.
