Case against 'Kraaifontein Six' rock solid - Police
The 17 men are accused of stoning & stabbing the victims while their hands and feet were bound.
CAPE TOWN - The Kraaifontein station commander has expressed confidence in the case against the accused in the so-called Kraaifontein Six murders.
Yesterday, the 17 men accused of killing six people in December last year appeared in court for a bail application.
The victims were allegedly stoned and stabbed and had their hands and feet bound.
It's believed four of the six men found murdered were known gangsters in Kraaifontein.
Brigadier Gerda van Niekerk said the evidence her detectives have collected against the accused is rock solid.
"I've got all the confidence the detective team, the investigation was done brilliantly and I think we're ready."
Van Niekerk adds although it was a speedy arrest process, the court proceedings will be a different matter.
"Getting them to the court and getting through the court process, that becomes a frustration. What makes this court case also challenging is, because there is so many suspects, everybody has the right to speak, the testifying process, everything takes longer than a normal court case."
The case has been postponed to later this month.
