Approximately 17 000 people have signed a petition demanding justice for Franco D’Este, a 20-year-old who was murdered outside of a Cape Town nightclub over the weekend. His alleged killer was released on bail of R2 000 after appearing in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Monday. This resulted in a friend of the deceased creating the petition.
“His loved ones sit in complete sorrow and this scum is out on bail! We need justice for him and others [who] have been innocently killed and their murderers that are walking free!” the petition’s creator, Amaarah Davids, wrote. “How many loved ones are still going to die this way and our government lets them walk out on bail? I need your help to sign this petition, this way we can demand the justice of our poor loved ones who have passed on.”
Fisher is expected back in the dock by November 29.
