PRETORIA - Judge Eben Jordaan on Wednesday continued his summary of the case against accused one in the Boeremag trial.

The 20 Afrikaner right-wing group members face numerous charges including high treason and terrorism in the North Gauteng High Court.

Judgment started on Monday this week and could take up to three weeks to complete.

Accused number one is Mike du Toit, the alleged author of "Document 12", which set out Boeremag's plan to overthrow the ANC government.

Jordaan accepted testimony given by state witnesses.

He said du Toit discussed seizing military bases and police stations at meetings attended by the witnesses and co-accused.

The document contained a five-phased plan that would lead to a Boer republic.

The high-profile matter has taken over nine years to complete, making it one of the longest running legal matters in South Africa.
