Access control was strict in the Bredasdorp Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday morning ahead of the appearance of Anene Booysen’s alleged killers.

Select family members were allowed in beforehand and filled up the four wooden benches.

About three media houses and their photographers were let in.

The remaining reporters were told they could not enter because they had not gained approval beforehand.

Booysen, 17 was gang-raped and disembowelled after visiting a club on Friday, February 1. Her body was found at the Asla Magwebu construction site, where she worked, not far from her RDP home, the next morning. She died in hospital that night.

Two men, aged 21 and 22, have been charged with the crimes and were set to appear for their bail applications.

At the pair’s last court appearance on February 12, magistrate Graham Cupido ruled that their faces not be shown in the media because the State believed this could jeopardise the ongoing investigation.
