Accused in Nathaniel Julies murder case denied bail
All three accused in the Nathaniel Julies murder case have been denied bail.
SOWETO - All three accused in the Nathaniel Julies murder case have been denied bail.
Police officers Simon "Scorpion" Ndyalvane, Caylene Whiteboy, and Voster Netshiongolo were applying for bail in the Protea Magistrates Court.
They are accused of killing 16-year-old Julies, who had Down syndrome, near his Eldorado Park home last month.
They also allegedly tampered with the crime scene.
The court broke out in cheers as Magistrate David Mangho delivered his bail verdict.
Mhango ruled that no exceptional circumstances were presented before him for the accused to be released on bail.
He said he had to consider peace in the community of Eldorado Park when making his decision, saying he had no doubt that the peace would be disturbed if he was to release the trio.
The matter was postponed to 6 November for further investigation.
