Pretoria - The matter against three men accused of stealing R17m in foreign currency from the State Security Agency was postponed in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The three men - William Mmotong, Albert Ramabele and Khayalethu Mgatyelwa - who are all out on bail, made a brief appearance before the matter was postponed to April 6. 

Their bail was extended until then.

The three were arrested in connection with the theft. Mmotong and security guard Mgatyelwa were arrested first. Ramabele handed himself in to police at a later stage.

They allegedly stole the money from a safe at the agency's Pretoria headquarters between Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
