A new Magistrate has been assigned to the case involving the alleged underworld figure, Nafiz Modack. Magistrate Abram Mashala, who originally oversaw the case, was wounded in the buttocks on Sunday, May 16, while being at a car wash in Mfuleni in Cape Town. A senior police officer was also killed and her three-year-old grandchild wounded.
Meanwhile, former rugby player and alleged tracker Zane Kilian, Modack and Ricardo Morgan, appeared before the Blue Downs Regional Court on Monday, May 24. The trio is linked to the assassination of Western Cape detective Charl who was killed in front of his Bishop Lavis home in September 2020, EWN reports. It is said that the state believes Modack allegedly ordered Kilian to track Kinnear’s phone.
The men also face multiple charges including murder, conspiracy to commit murder, illegal cellphone tracking, and racketeering. Meanwhile, Modack insists that he had nothing to do with the top cop’s murder, indicating rogue police officers are after him because he tried to stop bouncers from dealing drugs in clubs, News24 reported. Modack will remain behind bars after his bail application has been postponed. The matter will be heard on Friday, May 28.
