4 in court over Somali-bound arms
Durban - The case against four people arrested for possession of illegal arms and ammunition was postponed to April 1 by the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Derrick Coetzee, Bythe Cotterill, Christina Coycolazas and Joycelyn Niekerk were arrested at a house in Westville, Durban, after two short guns, eight rifles and 63 000 rounds of ammunition were found.
According to earlier reports, these were earmarked to help fight Somali pirates, but were instead illegally diverted to the local arms trade.
The case was adjourned for further investigation and ballistics reports.
