Defence lawyer in Senzo Meyiwa arrested after procedings

 The defence lawyer in the Senzo Meyiwa murder case was arrested in a dramatic fashion yesterday at the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria as he was representing the four men accused of murdering Senzo Meyiwa.

This is allegedly because he failed to make a court appearance in January on a trespassing charge, that was dropped. According to reports Advocate Malesela Teffo was taken into custody in the Pretoria High Court moments after proceedings were adjourned. Attorney Tshepo Thobane had told the court how Teffo was threatened and arrested when several men in blue and one in civilian clothing walked in to take him into custody.

This has prompted the National Police Commissioner, Fannie Masemola, to ask Gauteng Police Commissioner, Elias Mawela, to submit a report on the arrest of Teffo.
