Case Of Wife Accused Of Plotting To Murder Husband Awaits Decision Of The Director Of Public Prosecution

Miriam Tau (40), has made a brief appearance in the Kimberley Magistrates’ Court, where her case was adjourned to 11 August 2022, for a decision from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), in the Northern Cape. The accused is facing a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. On 15 May 2022, the accused was arrested at the Indian Centre in Kimberley, after a weeklong intelligence-driven and surveillance operation, led by the South African Police Services (SAPS) and its undercover agents. The accused is alleged to have planned to have her husband murdered.

On 24 May 2022, the accused applied for bail, the application continued to 25 May 2022, and it was concluded on 27 May 2022, when the accused was denied bail by the court. The Prosecution opposed the bail application, one of the submissions being that the life of the husband will be in danger if the accused is released on bail.

The accused will be remanded in custody, until her next court appearance on 11 August 2022, for the decision from the DPP.
