'Terrorism' case postponed
Polokwane - The terrorism case against three alleged right-wingers was on Wednesday postponed by the Phalaborwa Magistrate's Court to Thursday, SABC news reported.
The State still has to give closing arguments why the three should be denied bail.
They face seven charges, including charges to commit terrorism, related to their allegedly wanting to disrupt the Soccer World Cup.
A fourth accused, 21-year-old André Stroh, was granted bail of R3 000 in the Phalaborwa Magistrate's Court last Friday.
Stroh was one of six men initially arrested for allegedly violating the grave of former diplomat Norman Mashabane. Following further investigation it was found the violation of the grave was part of a plot to commit acts of terrorism against blacks.
Hawks spokesperson Musa Zondi said police found the men with large quantities of explosives and ammunition.
"We discovered they had quite a number of arms and ammunition and had capacity to manufacture explosives. They were found in possession of a large number of explosives."
The charges against two of the men were withdrawn last Friday.
