It is alleged that Tabisher took a R10 000 bribe in exchange for leaking valuable operational information to Modack along with a cellphone.
During Modack’s court appearance today his lawyer, Dirk Uys, indicated that his client had two issues to raise.
Uys said that Modack is required to sleep on a concrete surface and this is causing problems with his kidneys.
“He has seen a doctor, but the cold surface has not helped and we are therefore asking on record for arrangements to be made,” Uys submitted.
He also stated that Modack, a Muslim is not being fed halaal food.
The National Prosecuting Authority’ Eric Ntabazalila said Modack’s co-accused Tabisher wanted his bail application to be heard on Monday.
It’s expected the State will consolidate all the charges against the pair on Friday.
Modack is being held at an undisclosed location for his safety.
