Police Officers Charged In Julies Murder Back In Court

The Nathaniel Julies murder case is expected back in the Protea Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

The three police officers have been charged for the roles they played in 16-year-old Julies’ murder and the cleaning up of the scene.

Simon “Scorpion” Ndyalvane and Caylene Whiteboy, have been charged with defeating the ends of justice, being in possession of prohibited ammunition and discharging a firearm in public.

The third suspect, Vorster Netshiongolwe, has been charged with defeating the ends of justice.

It is understood that he was sent back to clean the scene.

Nathaniel, who was diagnosed with Down syndrome, died last month after he was shot, allegedly by police officers, when he went to buy biscuits just meters from his Eldorado Park home.

The officers have alleged that he was caught up in gang violence but this has been disputed by the boy’s family and the community.
