JOHANNESBURG - Terror-accused twins Brandon-lee and Tony-lee Thulsie are expected to appear in the Johannesburg High Court on Tuesday to face charges related to plotting terrorist attacks.

The brothers were arrested in July 2016 on suspicion of plotting terrorist attacks on various Jewish institutions and individuals.

They also allegedly attempted to join terrorist group, Islamic State.

The court postponed pre-trial proceedings in December to allow for arguments on the constitutionality of the Terrorism Act.

In September 2017, the United States froze their assets and imposed sanctions on the brothers.

The twins have been behind bars since their arrest.

The United States Department of State placed the twins on its terrorism list.
