The five spent another weekend at the Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre after the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court postponed the hearing on Friday.
They are facing charges of money laundering, theft and contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act involving just over R100 million.
Friday’s proceedings began with the State explaining to the court why the Bushiris and their co-accused should not be granted bail. The State prosecutor read an affidavit from the investigating officer.
"There is the likelihood that the release of the accused will disturb the public order or undermine the peace and security."Thereafter, lawyers for the accused began their arguments.
Lawyers for accused number two said that there was no way that their client could skip the country since she was a permanent resident of South Africa and had no family outside the country.
