MURDER accused Christopher Panayiotou’s legal team will head to the Grahamstown High Court on Monday (20/07/15) to appeal the lower court’s decision to deny him bail.
Advocate Mike Hellens, SC, will argue the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court erred in its decision to deny Panayiotou bail by finding him a flight risk.
Panayiotou, 28, was denied bail on June 5. It is alleged he paid Luthando Siyoli, 31, to hire hitman Sizwezakhe
Vumazonke to kidnap and murder Jayde Panayiotou, 29, in April.
They are all in custody.
