Presiding Judge of the Thulsie twins’ case says proper procedures were not followed
19 August 2016
On Monday,the Johannesburg Magistrates Court found the arrests of Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie were legal because the police had reasonable suspicion of an offence being committed.
The Hawks took the 23-year-old twins, at their homes in Newclare last month on suspicion that they were planning to bomb Jewish and US interests in the country.
However an urgent court application to challenge the arrests of the Thulsie twins has been struck from the roll.
Advocate Annelene Van Den Heever applied for an urgent court application to be heard in the High Court today to overturn Monday’s ruling.
The State was only served with the application last night and a single judge cannot overturn a ruling from a lower court.
The matter has to be challenged on review by two judges.
