South Africa's first anti-Semitism court case has been postponed to March 2 to give the defense team more time to examine documents, News24.com reported. The complaint is against Gerhard Barkhuizen, who is accused of painting a swastika on a wall facing his Jewish neighbor, Israeli-born Yaron Fishman. Fishman's legal representative is the provincial manager of the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC), Lufuno Mmbadi. The case was brought before the White River equity court in Mpumalanga last Thursday. Mmbadi said the magistrate had granted the defense until March to view, on request, any particulars her team would be using in the case.
