Lawyer claims Angelo Agrizzi is being treated harshly



Angelo Agrizzi’s lawyers argued that despite having more assets outside the country than in South Africa, fraud and corruption accused former Bosasa COO does not have any plan to get away with justice,

They insist that Agrizzi should be released on bail.

This come after the Palm Ridge Commercial Crimes Court denied bail for Agrizzi.

His lawyers told the High Court in Johannesburg that Agrizzi was being treated harshly by the prosecution despite the fact that the monies paid to Vincent Smith, who has been released on bail, were from Bosasa and not him.

Two weeks ago, Palm Ridge Commercial Crimes Court rejected Agrizzi’s application to be released on bail,

However, he is appealing that decision.

His lawyers informed the court that he is currently in the ICU on a ventilator and on dialysis.

They said his doctors are finding it hard to treat him because he is chained to a bed and there are so many armed  guards in his ward despite is unconscious nature.

The bail application judgement is expected to be heard on Friday.
