The Blue Bulls Company has decided to grant Bees Roux some leave until further notice and to exempt him from his rugby obligations for the time being.
The executive officer of the BBC, Barend van Graan, said it is essential to grant Roux immediate leave after the incidents of the last couple of days.
“He has been through some tough times in recent days and we feel it is appropriate to give him some time to recover from this,” Van Graan said.
The BBC will still not comment on the legal case against Roux and refer all queries in this regard to his legal representative, Mr. Rudi Krause. He can be contacted at +2782 496 0325.
