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.
