Durban – A teenager charged with allegedly setting a Pietermaritzburg high school deputy principal’s car alight, is due back in court next month.
The 17-year-old Northbury Secondary School learner made his second appearance in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
“The matter was remanded to October 6 for Legal Aid representation and further investigations. The learner remains in the custody of a guardian,” said spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority in the province, Natasha Ramkisson-Kara.
It is alleged the deputy principal had reprimanded the Grade 10 learner who was caught with his cellphone on school property, which is against school policy.
