Bail applications for alleged underworld boss Nafiz Modack, co-accused to finally go ahead

Published Jun 14, 2021


ALLEGED underworld boss Nafiz Modack and his co-accused will finally get their bail application under way at the Blue Downs Regional Court next week.

Modack, Zane Kilian, Jacques Cronje, Ricardo Morgan, and AGU member Ashley Tabisher appeared on a plethora of criminal charges linking them to the murder of top cop Charl Kinnear, the attempted murder of advocate William Booth as well as corruption charges.

Morgan is currently out on R50 000 bail under house arrest-like conditions at his Goodwood home.

On Monday, the court heard Modack would submit an affidavit to be considered for his bail application but it had not yet been finalised.

Meanwhile, counsel for Tabisher, Bruce Hendricks, was unsuccessful in submitting his opposition to have the matter postponed as he was ready to proceed with his bail application “since day one”.

Hendricks averred that Tabisher had been in custody for 44 days and were ready to proceed with their bail application.

Magistrate Deon van der Spuy, however, declined the document to be handed up for consideration and instead advised Hendricks that his client had to “get onto the wagon with others”, with proceedings.

As the bail applications are for multiple accused, the matter was set down for a number of days to be heard after all legal counsel could agree on dates for the matter to go ahead.

The multiple-bail applications are scheduled over three days on June 24 and 29 and July 1.
