Arrested to Court Appearance
For security reasons, all I will say [is] she is in good keeping. It will be wrong to say where she is for security reasons,” investigating officer Brigadier Gops Govender told journalists outside the Durban Magistrate’s Court where four accused appear in-camera – meaning no media or public were allowed at the proceedings. This decision was taken because of the high level of sensitivity surrounding the matter.
Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi confirmed that the accused – aged between 30 and 34 – have been charged with kidnapping, extortion, robbery, two counts of attempted murder, and remaining in the country without a valid permit.
“The case has been postponed, pending further investigation until 18 November, 2019. The order of the court [is that] the names and details of the suspects not be published to not compromise the investigation.
