Accused Nathaniel Julies killers seek bail in court



The Eldorado Park police officers linked to the murder of 16-year-old Nathaniel Julies have declared their intents to apply for bail.

Scorpion Ndyalvane, Caylene Whiteboy, and Vorster Netshiongolo made a brief appearance at the Protea Magistrates Court on Thursday.

This is the first time Vorster Netshiongolo joined his other co-accused in court for the murder of the teen.

Whiteboy got herself a private legal aid to represent her in court.

The officers’ lawyers told the court that the trio will be applying for bail.

However, Julies’ family advisor, Reverend Larry Varie said the community is not in support of the bail.

“The community will be very upset, and it will be better for the prosecution to ensure that the accused remain behind bars and the outstanding people who were part of this crime must also be pick up as soon as possible,” Varie said.

The three officers are accused of shooting and killing Julies who had Down syndrome few meters away from his home at Eldorado Park last month.

The officers are facing charges of murder, defeating the ends of justice, using unauthorised ammunition and discharging a firearm in public.

The matter has been postponed to 22 September.
