THE High Court in Port Elizabeth is expected to rule today on whether prominent lawyer Mike Randell may have access to some of his seized assets.
Randell applied to the court for the release of some of his assets worth R800000 that were seized by the Asset Forfeiture Unit. He needs R500000 to pay legal fees.
His advocate, Patrick Scott SC, said in court earlier this week Randell had complied with conditions when disclosing his interest in property he owned and had no other assets on which he could rely to fund his litigation.
Randell was charged with former Greenwood Primary School principal Patrick Shelver of defrauding the school of millions after selling school property. Randell pleaded not guilty and a separation of trials was ordered.
