Alleged underworld boss, Nafiz Modack, has been denied bail and will spend the weekend behind bars.
The proceedings took place in the Parow Regional Court on Friday, April 30. Modack, along with three other suspects, has been implicated in the murder of police officer Lt-Col Charl Kinnear, who was shot dead outside his home in Bishop Lavis in September, 2020.
One of the suspects in the failed grenade attempt on Kinnear’s home, Amaal Jantjies, was allegedly given two BMW’s by Modack and paid R12 000 to get a police Anti-Gang Unit member on his payroll, reports The Daily Maverick. According to the State, this was to ensure that Modack was kept up-to-date with future raids on his home.
The suspects were arrested in Cape Town on Thursday after a high-speed chase occurred, reports EWN.
“The suspects were noticed by the team in Century City yesterday. When the team allegedly attempted to stop them, they accelerated with one vehicle, missing one of the members. A high-speed chase ensued, and the suspects were cornered and arrested,” stated Hawks spokesperson Katlego Mogale.
The suspects have been arrested and charged with attempted murder, gang-related extortion, kidnapping and intimidation.
