Cllr Anne du Plessis:

On Thursday, 2 April 2015, the Democratic Alliance Women’s Network (DAWN) will hold a poster demonstration outside the New Law Courts in North End, Port Elizabeth to oppose bail for alleged wife murderer, Morne van der Linden.

The accused has recently returned from the Fort England hospital in Grahamstown where he underwent a psychological evaluation to determine whether he is fit to stand trial.

South Africa is a country with high levels of violence and gender based violence is one of the biggest challenges faced by women in South Africa.

DAWN stands for women’s rights, constitutionality and justice for victims of gender violence.

There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.

Date: 2 April 2015
Time: 8.30 – 10.30
