Inside court, the State definite the benefits of the case and expressed that Salie had brought Adams for court, who had purportedly offered him R10 000 not to send a warrant or go against his bail.
"There was a set-up, and the denounced (Salie) got the cash at the shop close to the court (Wynberg Magistrates' Court)," said the State investigator. " "The AGU captured the charged."
Salie's lawyer informed the court that he was a dad of six kids and could just bear the cost of R1 000 bail after the State mentioned R10 000.
The State acknowledged the R1 000 bail proposal.
Salie's legitimate group informed the court that Salie's associates would help the spouse by accompanying her to the ATM to pull out the cash.
No bail conditions were set, just that Salie didn't meddle with state observers.
