gavel thumb100 TimesLIVE reports that the case against a former Bryanston High School sports coach accused of sexually harassing three pupils was scheduled to continue in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court on Monday.  

He last appeared in court in March when the state requested a postponement as it still needed to obtain statements from three potential witnesses.  The accused is a 33-year-old who was dismissed from the school on 1 March following a disciplinary hearing at which he was found guilty of sexually harassing the three pupils, as well as financial mismanagement.  He is currently out on bail.  Following the postponement, Women and Men Against Child Abuse (WMaca) called for there to be no more delays in the case, highlighting that it had first been heard in court in January.
