Police get 14 day extension to hold gun suspects
Two men in police custody may be held for another 14 days in connection with a firearm investigation.
Chief Justice Richard Ground ruled that the pair should remain in custody to allow officers sufficient time to gather forensic evidence.
His ruling was made at a Supreme Court hearing yesterday morning.
Mr Justice Ground also imposed a ban preventing the media from reporting the suspects names.
The men are being held under a 2010 amendment to the Firearms Amendment Act, which permits authorities to hold suspects for up to 31 days without charge.
