Thank you!

Today, 29 April 2019, I appeared in court in Cape Town and was charged with the pre-meditated murder of Richard Holland in 2015; this is the third charge I now face. Richard Holland was a South African triathlete who broke his neck when he was knocked off his bicycle while training. As a consequence of this accident he developed locked-in-syndrome. My next court appearance is on the 24th of May when a date for the High Court trial will be set.  Once again I wish to express my immense gratitude to the messages of support my family and I have received from around the world; it gives us considerable comfort to know we are not alone on this journey.
