The bail application of the #CoffinAssault duo has been refused by Judge Mphahlele.
Judge says there are no reasonable prospect of success on appeal.
Judge Mphahlele says the applicants believe they will be successful in their appeal at the SCA.
Adv. Basson says the application is not premature.
Gibbs says there hasn't been a bail application since Judge Mphahlele refused to grant them leave to appeal her sentence in October.
Adv Gibbs says if the petition fails the accused will "happily" go back to prison.
Molokoane says they are other accused in similar situation - he says if the court grants the duo bail then the other accused must be heard as well.
"The SCA might not even grant them permission to petition," says Molokoane.
"In the video there is no evidence of any injuries on Mr Mlotshwa," says Adv Gibbs.
