Terror-accused Thulsie twins' case postponed to April

EWN reporter, Gia Nicolaides says the case of the terror-accused twin brothers, Brandon-Lee Thulsie and Toni-Lee Thulsie was on Tuesday postponed to April 2018.

The Thulsie brothers were arrested in 2016 and charged with counts of conspiring and attempting to commit acts of terror.

The twins were arrested in July 2016 and the matter has still not gone to trial. They were allegedly linked to the Isis group and have been accused of planning to use explosive stuff at the US embassy and Jewish institutions in South Africa

Nicolaides says little information is disclosed when there are new developments in the case.

They are facing terrorism charges and that is why the matter was considered as high profile few months after it started.

Nicolaides says according to advocacy group Cage Africa, the family is asking for the two brothers to be at least put under house arrest because they are taking a great deal of strain and want a speedy trial.
