A PORT Elizabeth man, acquitted two months ago of contravening the National Heritage Resources Act, was back in court yesterday, this time for allegedly pillaging scrap metal from a shipwreck dating back 80 years.

Jimmy Uys, 50, was joined in the dock yesterday by his 20-year-old son, Carl.

Following a brief appearance in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court, the father and son, represented by attorney Alwyn Griebenow, were released on R5000 bail each.

Their bail conditions stipulate that they may not participate in any diving activities until the case is finalised. – Kathryn Kimberley
