Sca To Hear Jason Rohde's Appeal Of Bail Refusal Later This Month

  |   Sanews

The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has set down a date for later in November to hear Jason Rohde's appeal of a high court decision not to release him on bail while he waits to appeal his murder sentence and conviction.

In an SCA notice on Thursday morning, Rohde was notified that the bail appeal would be heard on November 28.

Rohde had initially approached the Western Cape High Court for bail so he could look after his business interests, but Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe refused the application in August.

Last year, Salie-Hlophe found Rohde guilty of the murder of his wife Susan, and of staging her suicide at the Spier Hotel in Stellenbosch three years ago.

Rohde had argued that he needed to be released on bail to deal with a "hostile takeover" of his company, as well as to help avoid a situation where funds for his daughters would run out by the end of the year.

This while he also appeals his murder sentence and conviction in the SCA.
