Meanwhile, the anti-gang organisation Pagad says it’s not saddened by the murder of the criminal lawyer who had represented alleged gang bosses.
Hassan represented several alleged Western Cape gangsters including 28s gang boss Ralph Stanfield, 26's leader Jerome Booysen, in addition to a murder accused and suspected gun peddler.
Pictures of the car with shattered windows were posted on a Facebook account attributed to a group called Pagad G-Force, apparently a breakaway group from Pagad.
Pagad spokesperson Haroon Orrie says they are not sorry about Hassan’s murder, but maintains that the group is not behind it.
