Cape Town - A bodyguard accused of stealing from Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday with his two co-accused.

Prosecutor Keppler Uys said the Western Cape directorate for public prosecutions had directed that Ianval Suiling Isaacs, 33, and his two accomplices would go on trial on February 23.

Isaacs, a police official, had been deployed to Mthethwa's residence before the house robbery. He faces charges of housebreaking with intent to steal, theft, malicious damage and fraud.

His co-accused, Amdat Hossain, 42, and Mohammad Shapul Islam, 34, were charged with possession of stolen property. Isaacs allegedly sold Mthethwa's laptop and cellphone to the two men after breaking into Mthethewa's home.

The three were arrested in September.

Isaacs was granted bail of R1 000 and the others R400 each.

Their bail was extended on Monday.
