Adoptive mom of 'abused' Tammy out on bail

October 19 2006 at 11:43AM

The adoptive mother of 21-month-old Tammy Herman, who died in what was called one of South Africa's worst child abuse cases, was granted R10 000 bail on Thursday.

Zaibunisa Herman, 34, briefly appeared in the Johannesburg magistrate's court in connection with Tammy's death in January.

Dressed in brown formal pants and a brown chiffon shirt, Herman folded her arms and looked straight ahead as Magistrate S Radasi granted her bail.

"The State has not opposed bail and after considering the facts, bail has been granted at an amount of R10 000," Radasi said.

"However, I have four bail conditions."

Herman must appear in court on the court date, she cannot leave Johannesburg without informing the investigating officer, she must hand over her passport to the investigating officer and she cannot leave the province without obtaining permission from police.
