Tshireledzo Ndou, the lawyer of convicted rapist and escapee Thabo Bester, is facing serious criminal charges himself, according to IOL.
The National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phaladi Shuping has confirmed the alleged crime.
The case, which involves alleged attempted rape and assault, has been postponed to June 21, 2023 and the 27-year-old Ndou is out on a R1 000 bail. Newzroom Afrika shared a partial image of the charge sheet on Twitter, which was opened at the Bainsvlei police station in Bloemfontein.
Ndou will be represented by Bester’s lawyer Jeremia Pela, who has also reportedly been criminally charged.
