Admission: Also on trial in Pinetown

2008-07-13 00:00

Both Ntokoza Majola and Jabulani Hadebe have admitted that they are facing trial in Pinetown for a Hillcrest housebreaking and theft. They are are out on bail.

The pair maintain that the housebreaking and theft charges cannot be used against them to show that they have a propensity to commit crimes.

The state has produced a list of previous charges against the accused for various crimes, which were withdrawn and which are being re-examined.

Inspector Riaan van Rooyen said the state intends re-instituting one of these charges, which Majola and Hadebe and 18 others were to face in East London, of conspiring to rob Coin Security, possession of assault rifles and ammunition and stolen property.

He said they are waiting for DNA reports in connection with these allegations.
