In the light of the murders, magistrate Bruce Pedro banned the media from photographing attorneys and respecting the dignity of the accused when shooting.
Among other charges against the accused are money laundering and obstruction of justice.
The allegations relate to allegations that the Accused took over security operations at clubs and restaurants, forcing owners to pay for them.
