The case against terror-accused twins Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie is expected to resume in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

The twins were arrested in July, and face three counts of contravening the Protection of Constitutional Democracy Against Terrorist and Related Activities Act.

On November 7, the case against the Thulsie twins who are accused of plotting terror attacks on American and Jewish interests in South Africa, was postponed.

At the time advocate Anneline van den Heever for the 23-year-old twins told the court that she had read the affidavit handed in by prosecutor Chris MacAdam and said she needed to approach her clients on a way forward.

MacAdam, who asked the court for more time to allow for the completion of investigations into the terror plot allegations, said the State was ready to respond to any issues raised by the defence.

Police arrested the twins on July 9, after they searched their home and found documents that they said incriminated the pair in terror plots and planning to join the terror group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The accused have been in custody since their arrest.

The twins have been charged with conspiracy and incitement to commit the crime of terrorism and conspiring and attempting to commit acts associated with terrorist activities.
