Former Australian spinner Stuart MacGill has been in the news lately after being a kidnapping victim. Meanwhile, there seem to be new twists coming in as the investigations unfold.

MacGill was kidnapped last month by four men in Sydney and assaulted before being released. Last week, four men in connection to the same were arrested by New South Wales Police, while his ex-girlfriend revealed that her brother could have been a part of the kidnapping.

Meanwhile, FOX Cricket has reported that three of the kidnappers appeared in Sutherland Local Court on Monday. However, one of the alleged said that he was unaware of the kidnapping plot.

“The police would have to establish that … the applicant was aware of all the elements of the kidnapping, which is an issue, in order to participate in that kidnapping and direct that kidnapping. The evidence does not support that,” said the accused’s lawyer, Greg Goold.

Another accused, Son Minh Nguyen, put in a bail application while being charged for playing a pivotal role in the entire incident. The court has also seen the text messages between him and an undercover operative presented as evidence by the cops. However, Michael Connell has postponed the accused’s application and a decision on the same would be taken on May 19.
