The assault case against Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s assistant director for Labour Law, Liezelle Vermaak (42), will proceed to trial in the Port Elizabeth District Court on 21 August, says a report in The Herald.
Vermaak is accused of assaulting her boyfriend, Simon Mandel (59), after breaking into his home last month. It is alleged the lawyer stabbed Mandel repeatedly in the hand, arm and leg with a kitchen knife. He sustained minor injuries. Several windows at his property were also smashed. The report adds in a surprise twist, Mandel was in turn arrested for allegedly breaching a protection order Vermaak obtained against him. He is due back in court on 2 June.
