Judgment in Omotoso bail bid due on Tuesday


Judgment in the bail hearing of Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso is expected to be delivered on Tuesday, after the state wrapped up its closing arguments on Friday.

It is the third time Omotoso, 62, is applying for bail after being denied twice in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court and losing an appeal against the decision in the Port Elizabeth High Court.

Omotoso’s latest bid is based on new facts including that he was not a flight risk, that he would not interfere or threaten state witnesses and that the state had a weak case against him, with the trial been unjustifiably delayed.

He was arrested on April 20  2017, at the Port Elizabeth International Airport after arriving from Durban to be interviewed by the Hawks.
