Bail application for 'terror twins' postponed to next week

The case against the Johannesburg twin brothers arrested on terrorism charges has been postponed to next week, as the state was not prepared to proceed with their bail application.

Brandon-Lee Thulsie and Toni-Lee were arrested less than 10 days ago and have been charged with three counts of conspiring and attempting to commit acts of terror.

They’re accused of planning to bomb an American mission and Jewish institutions in the city.

The siblings have obtained the services of a new defence team and the previous lawyers were not present in court to confirm the transfer of legal representation.

The case has been postponed to Monday 25, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.

Nicolaides explains that the Thulsie family were also seen during the brief court appearance at the Johannesburg Magistrates Court.

The family says they don't believe that the twins had ever intended to travel to Syria and pledge allegiance to terror group Isis.
