15 placed under house arrest

All but three of the 18 people who appeared in the Hermanus Magistrates’ Court for charges relating to the latest wave of unrest in the town were released and placed under house arrest on Monday.

Those implicated in an attack on a police officer will stay behind bars for now.

Magistrate Jeremy Maarman released one person on a warning and granted the other 14 bail of R500. Their bail conditions are that they may leave home only to go to work or look for work, and that they remain at the address provided to the court between 20:00 and 06:00 every day.

After the cases of the 15 were heard they filed out to pay bail collected through a community fundraising drive. The remaining three, which included Zwelihle Renewal Committee member Theron Mqhu, appeared.

They face charges related to an axe attack on a policeman as well as the alleged theft of three fire-arms from his vehicle. The charges include attempted murder and robbery with aggravated circumstances. Two firearms were recovered.

Mqhu and the two others are in custody until their bail application. He faces a charge of incitement to cause public violence. — News24
