CAPE TOWN - England fan Pavlos Joseph,
who was arrested for trespassing after he walked into the
national team's dressing room after a World Cup match, will find
out next Wednesday if he will face a criminal trial or not.
The 32-year-old evaded security and slipped into the England
players' changing room after the team's goalless draw with
Algeria at Cape Town's Green Point stadium, raising concerns
about lax security at the tournament.
England's David Beckham has said the fan, who was arrested
on Sunday, did not comment on the team's performance and just
said "hello" before walking out.
Cape Town Magistrates' Court was told that Joseph's defence
team will make representations to the National Directorate of
Public Prosecutions who will determine whether the case should
Magistrate Aziz Hamied postponed the hearing until June 30,
saying if the case was not dropped, Joseph would then enter a
plea and the trial would commence.
A relaxed-looking Joseph, who appeared in court wearing a
grey suit, had his bail of 500 rand ($65.58) extended. He has
been barred from viewing any other World Cup matches.
