Man on trial for SWC stadium bomb threat

2012-06-13 11:17

Pretoria - A Pretoria man is currently on trial for planning terrorist attacks on 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums before the Soccer World Cup.

The Pretoria News reported that Johannes Scheepers, 49, was facing 10 charges relating to terrorism and possession of illegal arms.

Scheepers was allegedly a member of a right-wing organisation and a founder of the Nuwe Boerekommando (New Boer Commando).

On Tuesday, the court heard evidence from two agents who were said to fear for their lives.

One of the agents testified that Scheepers told him he wanted to provide military training to his group and also fire mortars into townships. After this, they would target World Cup stadiums. 

Several 9mm pistols, ammunition, tear gas, hand grenades, an M3 semi-automatic gun, shotgun and crossbow were seized at Scheepers’s Bapsfontein farm after his arrest.

    That's what happens if you are too engrossed to sights like these ones. You end up believing all the s*#t you read and end up doing really daft things. Out there people are getting along.(Okay they at least pretend)

    Kagiso and Thandazile, any plan by any race to cause injury or death to innocents is deemed terrorism & unacceptible. Not so long ago there was talk amongst a lot of whites that all blacks should be driven into the sea and they were called racist. Now you call for the same, just reversed, I declare you racist, finish and klaar!

    I remember before 2010 on this site comments were made that muslim were planning to attack the stadium. I wonder what religion does the accused follow?
