- South African media associations are challenging the decision by the Prosecution to have the hearing of the murder of the right wing leader, Eugene Terreblanche, in camera. Limited media coverage could lead to speculations.
The groups have said they expect the magistrate to hear their plea first thing tomorrow morning before the two suspects appear for the second time in Ventersdorp court.
The media groups argue that the case has draw a lot of interest and that it would be in the best interest of the public that the media is at least allowed into the proceedings instead of reporting speculation.
The decision to have the hearing in camera was made as one of the suspects is a minor, 15 years of age.
According to the media group's papers, terms of restrictions could be drawn on the media, especially in protecting the identity of the minor suspect.
Mr Terreblanche was allegedly murdered on his farm on 3 April by two of his farm workers, who hit him with an iron rod until he died.
However, there are new versions now coming up, as to what could have caused the dispute that led to his death, including allegations of sodomy.
