Court dismisses Timothy Omotoso’s latest bail application

The bail application of Pastor Timothy Omotoso, who is accused of a series of crimes, has been dismissed. The Port Elizabeth High Court found that the defence had not put forward any exceptional circumstances to warrant granting Omotoso bail. He and two women are facing numerous charges, among them rape and human trafficking. Judge Phillip Zilwa was not convinced that the defence had proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Omotoso should be released on bail.
