ISIS-linked kidnap case adjourned

THE matter against Fatima Patel (27), Sayfydeen Aslam Del Vecchio (38) and Themba Xulu (19), heard in the Verulam Magistrate’s Courth this morning, has been adjourned to 6 March for formal bail application.

The accused, who are charged relating to the abduction of SA-British botanists Rodney (74) and Rachel (63) Saunders, will remain in custody until their next appearance.

Patel appeared in her full niqab head scarf with a black leather jacket and black Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.

Del Vecchio appeared with a white shirt, long hair and a full beard, clutching a bag with a thick book – possibly the Qoran – protruding from it.

Asked by the presiding magistrate if he had anything to say, Xulu claimed innocence, telling the court he did not know why he had been arrested and was brought to court.

He spoke in isiZulu and came across in an arrogant manner.
