The woman who aimed her firearm at a group of EFF members in Port Elizabeth has since been threatened with death.
SA Updates reached out to Diane Attwell’s legal representative, Terry Price.
Price is submitting documents to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to drop the ‘non-existent’ criminal case against her.
Written demands have been made by Attwell’s legal team to the EFF to stop insulting, defaming, and threatening her. Failing to do this, a High Court Interdict against the EFF will be obtained. It is also the intent to sue the Minister of Police and Justice for unlawful and malicious arrest, detention, and prosecution as well as the EFF and the Walmer Park Centre.
The EFF has agreed to stop insulting and harassing Attwell. Price says that Walmer Park shopping Centre allowed the EFF to do as they please and they were more interested in accommodating the EFF than their day-to-day customers.
According to Price, information was received that Police minister, Bheki Cele gave direct instructions to the Port Elizabeth Police to arrest Attwell.
At the Clicks in Walmer Park, EFF members started bumping into Attwell and surrounding her to get her out of the store. Outside the store, EFF members bumped into her again and said “f****f back to Europe”, after which she threatened to take out her 7.65 mm pistol.
SA Updates previously posted the video of the incident that occurred at Clicks, Walmer Park.
