Cape Town - Advocates Pete Mihalik and Noorudien Hassan became known as the gangster lawyers over the years, representing several known high-flyers, including convicted murderer and 28s gang boss Saliem John, Hanover Park gang kingpin Cecil “Ses” Brown, alleged Sexy Boys leader Jerome “Donkie” Booysen, as well as suspected 28s gang boss Ralph Stanfield.
Stanfield was arrested this month after cops raided his garage in Bishop Lavis and allegedly found several stolen cars.
In 2014, Stanfield, his wife Nicole, his sister Francesca, and three high-ranking cops were arrested on a string of charges relating to fraud, corruption, and contravention of the Firearms Act at the Khayelitsha Priority Crime Court.
They were acquitted.
Stanfield is the cousin of convicted 28s gang boss in Valhalla Park, Saliem John.
