Counterfeiter’s bail denied

RANDBURG – Bail is denied for counterfeiting accused Iegwin Deacon.

Accused Iegwin Deacon and Storm Brits appeared in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on 2 February in connection with the case of

counterfeit money ,see previous story.

Iegwin Deacon’s attorney Ian Allise presented a formal bail application before the court.

Deacon is facing multiple counts of counterfeit money, fraud, possession of stolen goods and reckless driving.

The state opposed bail, arguing that Deacon poses a flight risk as well as a threat to society.

Magistrate Salome le Roux denied Deacon’s bail application.

The grounds were as follows:

  • He poses a threat to the community and the economy of the community.
  • Further, he may be a flight risk as the location of his passport is not known and he has no fixed address or geographical bounds to South Africa.

Storm Brits’ bail application is still pending.

Brits can still apply for bail during the postponement date, which is 27 March.
