Diane Attwell, the Port Elizabeth woman accused of pointing a firearm at protesters outside a Clicks store earlier this week, made a brief court appearance on Thursday morning.

The case was postponed to November 6 for further investigation.

She faces a charge of pointing a firearm.

The prosecution said a witness statement and video footage from the Walmer Park shopping centre, where Attwell clashed with protesters on Tuesday morning, were still outstanding.

Later, she was led out the back of the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court building.

Despite some police presence, there were no protesters outside the court.
