The lawyer of the ex-police officer accused of the murder of a police officer and 2 patients at New Somerset hospital says his client is suicidal. 39-year-old, Jean-Paul Malgas from Vredenberg yesterday appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on the charges of murder. A robbery charge stems from an allegation that he took the firearm of Constable Donay Phillips who was guarding a man at the hospital. It’s understood that Phillips had gone to investigate a commotion in another ward when he was disarmed.
