The bail bid of former Bosasa COO who was accused of corruption was declined by the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court after the State proclaimed that he was a flight risk


Former Bosasa COO – Angelo Agrizzi’s bail appeal for his fraud and corruption case would be heard in the High Court in Johannesburg next week Monday.

The bail bid was declined by the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court after the State proclaimed that he was a flight risk.

The former executive still remains unconscious and currently in the ICU, at a private Johannesburg medical facility.

After he spent a night in jail, his health started deteriorating, and was transferred to hospital for further medical attention.

His lawyer – Daniel Witz mentioned that his client had a constitutional right to apply for bail.

The bail application is simply whether he is entitled to his liberty and freedom under the Constitution of South Africa as a South African citizen, so we’re simply saying that we believe the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court made some errors in their judgment and that they should have granted bail and we’re asking that bail be granted.”
