Two of the three men implicated in the murder of 30-year-old Meghan Cremer from Philippi have abandoned their bail applications.

Jeremy Sias, Charles Daniels and Shiraaz Jaftha appeared in the Athlone Magistrates Court earlier on Thursday.

Police arrested the trio shortly after Cremer’s body was found at a sand mine in Philippi more than a week ago.

Sias and Daniels indicated they would not apply for bail. Their case was postponed to 16 October for further investigation and Jaftha will apply for bail on 11 September.

At this point, all three men face murder charges.

Police officers found the trio in possession of the deceased’s car.

Scores of protesters gathered outside the court during proceedings – with banners reading “no bail, go to jail”.

The SA Women Fight Back organisation, having started after Cremer’s murder, already collected 60,000 signatures on a petition calling for bail to be denied.
