N2 – North Coast alleged rock throwers are free to go – case withdrawn
The case against the three men accused of causing the death of Amina Haffajee and her young brother, Abdur last year when they allegedly threw a rock from a bridge between Tongaat and Ballito on the N2 has been withdrawn.
A source that would like to remain anonymous informed MyBallito that the case was withdrawn due to various inconsistencies with regards to the witness statements. According to the source, one witness apparently retracted their claim leading to the charges being dropped against the accused.
MyBallito reached out to the Prosecutor in the case but did not receive a response by the time of publication.
Rock throwing on this stretch of road increased drastically during the period in question and caused many more injuries.
Reports have been doing the rounds that the rock throwing issue has again reared its ugly head – with new incidents being reported. We have however been unable to confirm this claim.
