JOHANNESBURG - The Thulsie brothers will be back in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court today where their lawyers will present their arguments for the brothers to be granted bail.

Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie are facing terrorism charges after the Hawks apparently found evidence that shows they were planning attacks on American and Jewish interests in Johannesburg.

Their bail application was postponed yesterday to allow their lawyers more time to prepare.

Advocate Anneline Van Den Heever, who represented convicted Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir for some time, is now representing the Thulsie twins.

She told the court yesterday that she needed access to the amended charge sheet but the magistrate says the State is not obliged to do so at this stage.

The amendment is, that the twins are accused of attempting to deliver, place or discharge an explosive at a US mission and Jewish institutions with the intention to cause death or serious bodily harm.

The mother of the twins sobbed as the pair were escorted back to the court's holding cells where they have been held for more than two weeks now.

The bail application will be heard today, with the State set to oppose bail based on the serious nature of the charges.
