Yengeni Appeal Postponed Indefinitely




Date 2004-07-26




An appeal by former African National Congress chief whip Tony Yengeni against what he considers to be a "harsh and severe" four-year jail sentence for fraud was postponed indefinitely on Monday.

The matter was adjourned by Pretoria High Court judge Ronnie Bosielo for the prosecuting authority to determine a date for its enrolment, said State advocate Riegal du Toit.

The postponement took place in the judge's chambers.
