Abahlali baseMjondolo Press Statement
The Kennedy 12 appeared in Y court today. The defence lawyer was finally given case docket. At the hearing the magistrate set down 12 July 2010 as the trial date.
The five who are still in Westville Prison will appear before the same magistrate who refused them bail last year. Their bail application has been set down for Thursday 20 May 2010 at Court 10.
