Many times, the accused’s sense of wearing can also occupy a central position, just like what they are accused of. There are some personalities here, and their sense of fashion swings in court:
Thandi Maqubela (pictured) was accused of murdering her husband, Judge Patrick Maqubela, who was at a critical moment in her court appearances – bright head wraps and shadows.
She wore a two-piece suit or a Kossa costume in court, and one would swear that she was a lawyer, not a defendant.
Thereafter, after the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned the murder, she was released and said that her husband could have died of natural causes.
Sheryl Cwele, ex-wife of former National Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele, was convicted of drug trafficking.
Her drug lord Tessa Beetge was sentenced to eight years in prison in Brazil, and she was found to have cocaine in 2008.
In court, Cwele is crumbling, wearing two-piece clothing, thick necklaces and a variety of colored weaves. Cwele was sentenced to imprisonment for 12 years after being sentenced to 20 years on appeal.
In contrast, Oscar Pistorius appeared in court when he murdered his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. He was obviously subdued in a bright black suit.
He showed a more humble and sober image in court.
According to Minick Law, April 26, 2017, called Courtroom Etiquette, it is said that “the bold and beautiful colors are very interesting, but not in front of the judges is not fun, but justice, justice is a very serious matter. It is not time to eliminate the latest The avant-garde style or your best Hawaaian shirt.”
