Truck drivers arrested for obstructing the N3 will remain locked up.
The 12 truck drivers who were arrested on Friday, December 3 for blocking the N3 will remain in prison.
“The suspects had taken the keys of some of the trucks, rendering them immovable for a long period of time.”
Specialised units from the province had to be mobilised and assisted in removing the trucks from the road, allowing traffic to flow.
According to Natasha Kara, a spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority, the drivers have been charged with violating the road Traffic Act, specifically stopping on a freeway without lawful reason.
The case has been adjourned until December 10 for a bail application.
