VANDERBIJLPARK - The case against the four people accused of kidnapping a 6-year-old girl in front of Laerskool Kollegepark in Vanderbijlpark in September, continued in the Vanderbijlpark magistrate’s court today. The accused, Tharina Human, Pieter van Zyl, Laetitia Nel, and Bafokeng Molemohi face charges of kidnapping and extortion. The case against the four was previously postponed to allow for further investigations and to obtain DNA results. Thabelo Tshitaka, lawyer for the accused Pieter van Zyl, told magistrate Hussein Khota that Van Zyl wants to bring a new bail application based on new facts. Bail was previously denied to both Van Zyl and alleged mastermind, Tharina Human. The state is still awaiting a trial date in the High Court and the case was postponed to the 27th of March.
