Trio in court over alleged threat

2014-10-15 00:00

THREE men accused of threatening to “chop off” the head of a local attorney, appeared briefly in court yesterday.

Govindsamy Moodley and his sons, Damien and Darrol, were remanded in custody pending another appearance today.

The case was postponed as their attorney was unavailable yesterday.

The trio are charged with threatening lawyer Nasen Naicker at court on Monday by telling him they would chop his head off.

Naicker rushed to the police station where he laid intimidation charges and they were arrested

The trio are already involved in another dispute with Naicker. They are charged with attempted murder for allegedly luring him to their home in Northdale in December 2011 and attacking him with a bush knife.

The father and sons were at court waiting for judgment in connection with that case when they allegedly intimidated Naicker.
