CAPE TOWN – Family assassin Henri van Breda will now approach the Supreme Court (SCA) directly to challenge his conviction and conviction.

His application for permission to appeal was dismissed on Monday by the High Court of Western Cape.

In June, the 23-year-old was hit with three sentences for murdering his parents and older brother, and 15 years for attempts to kill his younger sister in Stellenbosch's home in 2015.

Van Breda maintains his innocence and claims that an intruder has attacked his family.

Judge Siraj Desai has established that the defense did not provide any compelling reasons why an appeal should be dealt with.

Desai says that the arguments put forward by the defense in support of a request for permission to appeal are similar, if not the same as during the trial.

He claims that the evidence shows that Van Breda was responsible and that the objective facts support the conclusion.

Desai has established that the main pillars of the state's case have proven Van Breda's fault. He says that the defense has argued little to suggest that another court would be different with the findings of the court.

Van Breda lawyers will now appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal in another attempt to try to have his request for permission for his conviction and conviction approved.

NOTE: Van Breda's request for permission to appeal is rejected
