Court to rule on terror suspects bid

The Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court will on Wednesday morning deliver a ruling on whether or not the case against terror suspects Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie, will be struck off the roll.

The twins were arrested in July during raids in Newclare just outside Johannesburg.

They face three counts of contravening the Protection of Constitutional Democracy Against Terrorist and Related Activities Act.

According to their charge sheet, the brothers were allegedly linked to the self-proclaimed Islamic State group and were allegedly planning to set off explosives at a US embassy and “Jewish institutions” in South Africa.

Last week, their defence requested the court to strike the matter off the roll.

Advocate Anneline Van der Heever claimed that the State was using delaying tactics by asking for several postponements to keep her clients behind bars.

In response, State prosecutor Chris MacAdam argued that they need more time to allow a forensic expect to analyse data from Facebook evidence collected from the twins accounts.
