Accused triple axe murderer Henri van Breda appeared on day 1 of trial in the high court.
The case was postponed to the 24 April 2017.
Van Breda is on trial for the murder of his father, mother and brother with an axe at De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate. He is also charged with the attempted murder of his sister, Marli, now 18.
This comes after Judge Siraj Desai granted Media24 permission to live-stream the highly anticipated trial.
Counsel for the defence and the NPA have indicated that they will approach the highest court in the land to appeal Desai’s judgment.
This is because they believe broadcasting the trial could impede Van Breda’s constitutional right to a fair trial among other things.
