Another Postponement to Kinnear Murder Case


The Defence in the Nafiz Modack assassination case has once again complained that the State had failed to provide the details needed to properly prepare for a bail hearing.

He appeared in the Blue Downs Regional Court today, along with four co-accused, facing a raft of charges related to the assassination of Anti-Gang Unit detective Charl Kinnear in September.

But the matter has once again be postponed, to June 9. Defence Advocate Dirk Uys says that they need specifics of where Modack was alleged to have conspired to commit the crimes he was charged with and with whom he allegedly colluded.

Co-accused Zane Kilian’s lawyer said he also needed more information on the State’s case, with reference to digital evidence.

But the National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson, Eric Ntabazalila says that the Defence wants access to the whole docket, which they are not entitled to as yet.

Prosecutors are hesitant to divulge too many details to the Defence, as it may jeopardise the case at this stage.
