Ballistic tests link alleged 28s gang leader to three murders
The court heard how Thomas and an associate mowed down three victims in Elsie’s River and Wesbank.
CAPE TOWN - Judge Chantel Fortuin has revealed ballistic tests link alleged 28s gang boss George 'Geweld' Thomas to three murders in 2008.
Thomas and 17 others are accused of more than 140 charges including murder, attempted murder and racketeering.
The marathon trial continues in the Western Cape High court today.
Thomas slouched into his seat with his arms folded across his chest and stared straight ahead as Fortuin revealed parts of her judgment today.
The court heard how Thomas and an associate, who later turned state witness, mowed down three victims in Elsie's River and Wesbank in February 2008.
Thomas is accused of being the triggerman after ballistic tests linked the bullets used in the murders to other crimes in the Bishop Lavis area.
Fortuin says several witnesses have also corroborated the use of a black Bantam bakkie in both murders, placing Thomas at the scene of the crimes.
But Thomas has again vehemently denied any involvement in either matter.
