Jayde Panayiotou murder: Middleman applies for his release on bail

The bail hearing of Luthando Siyoni, the self-confessed middleman who helped to plan the murder of Jayde Panayiotou on behalf of her husband Christopher, is expected to start in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

He was arrested in KwaZakhele at the start of May, several months after Judge Dayalin Chetty revoked his immunity as a Section 204 witness in the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth in November, last year.

Judge Chetty harshly criticised Siyoni's conduct and in the judgment, the judge called his testimony "a cocktail of lies, perjury and contrivances" designed to advance Christopher Panayiotou's defence.

He faces a charge of murder for his role in the abduction and murder of the school teacher.

Middleman's bail judgment postponed in Panayiotou murder trial


Port Elizabeth - Judgment in the bail application of the self-confessed middleman in the Jayde Panayiotou murder has been postponed.

Luthando Siyoni was due back in court on Friday but the matter was postponed to next week because the presiding magistrate was unavailable.

Siyoni, who faces a charge of murder after his immunity from prosecution was revoked, was arrested in KwaZakhele last month after evading police for nearly six months.
