Identical twin brothers
Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie‚ who face three charges relating to terrorism
activities are to appear in court this afternoon.
They are alleged to have been
plotting to attack US and Jewish interests in South Africa and of twice
attempting to fly to Syria to join IS.
The Thulsies were arrested on
the same weekend as siblings Ibrahim and Fatima Patel in police anti-terrorism
raids earlier this month.
Last Monday, Advocate for the
twins Annelene van den Heever had asked the court to compel the state to
disclose certain documents relating to the charges against the brothers.
Van den Heever said the
documents were needed to proceed with the Thulsies’ bail application.
But magistrate Pieter du
Plessis said the state has no obligation to disclose the documents at this
stage and that he does not have the power to order it to do so.
"More often than not at
bail there isn’t even a completed charge sheet‚" he said.
