Top Cape Town lawyer William Booth, who is assisting her, indicated that as far as he was aware there were no criminal charges.  The teacher reportedly had an affair with an 18-year-old pupil from the exclusive private school.  She has since resigned.  The Sunday Times identified her as 30-year-old Fiona Viotti - a niece of former Springbok coach Nick Mallett.  Things apparently went sour when the pupil tried to break it off with the teacher and informed his parents of the relationship.  Booth said that the teacher had not been through a disciplinary procedure before she resigned.  She has also not left South Africa, Booth added.  The provincial Department of Education said that because Bishops was a private school, it could not comment on the matter.
