Witz added that he's not really sure where the authorities think Agrizzi is going to go because he is connected to a ventilator, drips, and is in poor health. His bail appeal hearing is set for Monday at the Johannesburg High Court.

Witz said that they would now argue that Agrizzi has been receiving inhumane treatment as a person who has been fighting for his life. At this his first bail hearing last week, he was in a frail state and was connected to a small oxygen tank.

Correctional Services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo revealed that the information regarding Agrizzi's situation in the hospital was a breach of security protocols.

“When remand detainees are then transferred to outside healthcare facilities they remain inmates and they remain remand detainees hence then we still have to look after them.”
