In a joint security operation, police swooped on the houses of four suspected right-wing extremists and arrested them for suspected terrorism on Sunday. It is believed that the group’s members, aged between 40 and 50 years, wanted to launch an attack in order to disrupt the ANC’s elective conference in Mangaung. By De Wet Potgieter/NewsFire.
“These suspects are believed to be right-wing extremists, suspected of acts of terrorism,” police spokesperson Brigadier Billy Jones told NewsFire. “Their premises were searched and evidence supporting the investigation was seized.”
According to the police, the latest breakthrough against rightwing terrorism was a result of a successful joint operation by law enforcement entities. The suspects would be charged and brought before court whilst investigations continued, said Jones. DM
