Johannesburg - The investigating officer in the case of two teenager brothers accused of raping their great-grandmother, 96, intends on opposing bail when the matters return to court.
According to the Eastern Free State Police spokesperson, Sergeant Mmako Mophiring, the two suspects - aged 15 and 19- are still in custody and the investigating officer in the matter intends on opposing bail.
"The older suspect is retained at Makwane Police Station and will appear for his bail application on Wednesday,” he said.
“The 15-year-old boy is still at the Thabo Mofutsanyana Secure Care Centre, and is expected to appear at the Makwane Magistrate Court on March 27, Mophiring added.
Mophiring said the investigating officer in the case was expected to also take a stand in court to state why the suspects should not be granted bail.
