Heavy security was present in the Durban Regional Court on Friday for the bail hearing of 18 police officers accused of multiple murders.

Ten heavily armed police officers were present at the court, which was again filled with relatives of the 18 officers of the Durban Organised Crime unit.

The 18 face 71 charges which include 14 charges of murder, 14 of unlawful possession of ammunition, 14 of unlawful possession of firearms, and four of house-breaking.

One of the 18 men -- Rubendren “Shane” Naidoo -- arrived late after visiting the funeral parlour to pay his last respects to his 27-year old brother, who had recently died.

Police officers did not allow anyone to stand in the public gallery and were busy ejecting people from court.
