    Thank you for the updates, JudgeJudi. The more I read of this, the more I think he's guilty.

    In the Rohde video, Anthony Molyneux referred to Jolene Alterskye as JR's "ex-mistress". That's the first I've heard of this.

    https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/sou...ed-sa-in-2017/

    The following sheds a bit more light on the subject:

    "Jason Rohde’s former mistress has hired top criminal lawyer William Booth for the duration of the property mogul’s murder trial in which she is a State witness", but it’s not yet confirmed whether she will be called.

    Booth said his role is to assist the prosecutor and Alterskye as a witness.

    “I consult with her about what happens in court, prepare her for her testimony and generally guide her objectively and correctly through the whole process".

    “It’s not a case of telling her what to say and what not to say because my client has already made a police statement. It’s more about preparing her for testimony in a criminal court which can be a harrowing and traumatic experience.”

    “She didn’t witness anything. She had a relationship with the accused and no longer has had one for some time with him. But she is more than willing to testify. She has nothing to hide. She is not a suspect in the case at all. There’s no suspicion that she has done anything illegal.”

    William Booth frequently gave interviews during the OP trial.

    Was it a case of "if the heat's too great, get out of the kitchen"?

    Rohde's no-show at murder trial

    In a day filled with drama‚ Rohde failed to appear in court on Monday. The trial was supposed to sit for the first time since November.

    I was involved in a trial recently, being the victim.
    The accused used 'major depressive disorder', delaying the trial on several occasions:
    producing Medical Certificates, and Psychiatric Reports.
    Finally, after > than 3 years, these tactics no longer worked for him.
    He LOST!!!!!
    His LIES did not work.

    I hope this 'major depressive disorder' does not delay the trial for several months.
    It may be stated, that the accused requires long term treatment, and is not capable in 'functioning' in trial proceedings.

    Most of Jason #Rohde's legal team has withdrawn from his case, bar one lawyer Adv Van der Spuy, due to finances and conflict of interest. Instruction terminated on 14 Feb

    His defence team was initially made up of advocate Graham Van der Spuy, Mihalik, advocate Ross McKernan, attorney Daniel Witz and attorney Stacey Webb.

    Mihalik thanked Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe for her handling of the matter so far and left the courtroom along with the rest of the team who withdrew.

    Only Van der Spuy and one attorney remained.

    Before leaving, Mihalik told Salie-Hlophe that certain admissions had been made, but had not been signed off.


    He did not provide further details, other than to say that there was also a "privilege" issue which made his continued defence of Rohde no longer possible.

    "If we proceed we will be in breach of our duty toward our client and, as such we have no option but to humbly request this honourable court to permit ourselves to withdraw."

    Van Der Spuy asked Salie-Hlophe for a postponement so that he could get up to speed with the case and deal with the "admissions".

    After a short adjournment for a private discussion between the judge, prosecutor Louis Van Niekerk and Van der Spuy, the court postponed the case to 12:00 on February 27.

    Well I'm wondering if he confessed.

    And Tortoise, "Conflict of Interest".
    Perhaps this is real reason why Attorneys and experts have left.
    Could Rohde have confessed during 'Major Depressive Disorder', therefore 'conflict of interest' for Attorneys etc?
    If confessed, Rohde felt they were not required to dig up more evidence.
    Perhaps, 'conflict of interest', relates to other matters.
    We must wait to hear more.
