- The terrorism trial of the Thulsie twin brothers will begin next month, the High Court has ordered.
- The matter has been dragging for six years since the arrest of Brendon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie.
- Their legal team was furnished with outstanding documents before the start of the trial.
The State has handed all relevant and outstanding documents in its case against the Thulsie twins to their legal team.
The court had earlier ordered prosecutor Adele Barnard to hand over all outstanding documents to the defence team before the trial could start.
However, Barnard told Judge Ratha Mokgoatlheng that all confidential documents had been handed to the defence.
Brendon-Lee Thulsie and his twin brother Tony-Lee appeared relaxed on Thursday and even posed for photos at the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg before their matter was called.
The twins looked to the gallery and greeted family members.
As on Wednesday, they had a chat with their counsel advocate Abubakar Omar, who explained to them why their case was going to be postponed.
The twins are accused of planning to bomb the US Embassy, Jewish institutions and the UK High Commission.
- According to the State, they are allegedly linked to the jihadist group Islamic State.
- They have been in custody since their arrest in July 2016.
- They were arrested during raids in Gauteng on terrorism charges.
Their matter has been marred by delays, forcing them to spend six years in custody.
Their trial is expected to begin on 7 February.
