The bail application of the Thulsie brothers, Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee, who were accused of terrorism, is expected to start in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court today.

The twins are charged with contravening the Protection of Constitutional Democracy against Terrorist and Related Activities Act.

Last week National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Louw told journalists outside the court that they would oppose bail because the twins faced serious charges.

Louw said more charges could be added, or arrests made, during the course of the police investigation into the matter.

According to their charge sheet the brothers, who were arrested on July 9 along with siblings Ebrahim and Fatima Patel, were allegedly linked to the Islamic State terror group and were allegedly planning to set off explosives at a US embassy and Jewish institutions in South Africa.
