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. Zilwa did not believe that the televangelist was not a flight risk. Through the course of this case, Omotoso has been declared a prohibited person and could be deported if released from custody. The court believes the State has a strong case. The defence has indicated that it will appeal this latest ruling. Th...

Actor Anthony Rapp sues Kevin Spacey for sexual misconduct

Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey was accused in a civil lawsuit on Wednesday of sexual assault and battery in the 1980s by actor Anthony Rapp and a second, unnamed person when both plaintiffs were about 14.
