JOHANNESBURG - The case against the Thulsie twins who are facing terrorism-related charges has once again been postponed as the National Prosecuting Authority prepares for the case to be transferred to the High Court.

Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie were arrested at their homes in Johannesburg in July last year and accused of planning attacks on Jewish and American interests in the country.

There are also allegations that the pair attempted to travel to Syria to join Islamic State.

The National Prosecuting Authority’s Luvuyo Mfaku says an additional charge is also being added.

“The charge relates to the protection of our constitutional democracy against terrorism. So it’s in line with other charges and it will be added to the indictment as the 12th charge.”
