The court has reserved judgement on the bail appeal by former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi. Agrizzi is set to spent a few more days in custody in hospital where he is chained to his bed. The former Bosasa head is heavily guarded with guards stationed outside his room, in the passage outside the ICU as well as in the parking lot. Judgement will be delivered on Friday.
Agrizzi’s attorney Mannie Witz told media that life would be easier for his client if he was released on bail because of his deteriorating medical condition. Agrizzi’s bail was denied in the Commercial Crimes Court two weeks ago. After spending one night in prison, he was rushed to the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital after struggling to breathe. He has since been moved to a private hospital where he later suffered a heart attack.
