The Department of Home Affairs will investigate whether one of the men accused of stealing FNB safety deposit boxes is a South African.
Norman Moeli and Maredi Letsoalo‚ aged 44‚ who are facing charges of conspiracy to commit housebreaking and theft at an FNB branch in Randburg‚ appeared in court on Thursday for a bail application.
The application was postponed to next Wednesday for the department to determine Moeli’s nationality.
He is required to submit copies of his parents’ identity documents or death certificates‚ his birth certificate and primary and high school letters.
Moeli told the court that he is South African but the investigating officer discovered that he frequented Zimbabwe before he was arrested. He also found that Moeli owns seven Identity Documents.
It is alleged that the men drilled through the wall to gain access to the bank vault. About 362 safety deposit boxes containing valuables such as firearms‚ jewellery‚ money‚ and documents‚ were stolen.
