Former Minister of Social Transformation and Gender Affairs, Dean Jonas, has been assigned a fresh court date to address the five criminal charges lodged against him.
These allegations encompass resisting arrest, making threats, disorderly conduct, and assault and battery, all stemming from an incident at Jonas’s Scott’s Hill residence on February 23.
In the initial court appearance, Jonas’s legal representatives argued that the police lacked jurisdiction to prosecute under a 2017 law, leading to a delay.
However, the court later found that the law in question took effect in November 2021, enabling police prosecutions.
The case, previously hindered by various delays, is now scheduled for November 9.
