Alleged underworld figure Nafiz Modack was back in court on Tuesday - this time on corruption charges for allegedly bribing an officer for police intel.

Nafiz Modack and Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) member Ashley Tabischer appeared in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate's Court on corruption charges.

It's alleged that Modack bribed the 39-year-old officer in exchange for police information, reports Eyewitness News journalist Kevin Brandt.

Modack is also facing a range of other charges relating to alleged gang activity and conspiracy to commit murder.

This is in connection with an alleged plot involving a hand grenade outside the home AGU detective Charl Kinnear in 2019.

Kinnear was gunned down in front of his house in Bishop Lavis in September last year but Modack has not been charged for his murder.

Brandt says authorities appear to be slowly building a case against the alleged crime kingpin.

Modack and two others appeared at the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Monday in a separate matter relating to the attempted hit on defence attorney William Booth’s life.
