Diamond Theft Case

Judgment was reserved in the application for leave to appeal by Michael van Rensburg who was jailed for stealing diamonds.

Van Rensburg’s lawyer, Sakkie Nel, submitted the application, saying the court had underemphasised certain aspects of evidence during the sentencing proceedings.

State advocate, Hannes Cloete, from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, opposed the application.

He said Nel ignored the most important factor, namely the 15 years prescribed minimum sentence during the application and added that the eightyear sentence handed down by Judge Mamosebo was already “merciful”.
