Thulsie twins pre-trail expected to come to an end

Pre-trial proceedings in the case of terror accused twins Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie are expected to wrap up at the High Court in Johannesburg on Friday.

This after the Court ordered the State to ensure that all outstanding documents are handed over to the accused’s counsel by November 22, 2019, so they can prepare for trial.

The twins were arrested in July 2016 for allegedly plotting a series of attacks on Jewish targets and the US Embassy in the country.

They were charged with conspiracy and incitement to commit terror-related crimes and their pre-trial has seen a number of delays over the last three years.

The twins’ attorney Annelene van den Heever accused the state of using delaying tactics to delay the trial.

However, the state disputed the accusation arguing that it was due to technical difficulties that it has not managed to hand over all the outstanding documents.

A trial date is expected to be set on Friday.
