Tony Leon's father tied up, assaulted

Retired judge Ramon Leon, the father of former DA leader Tony Leon, was attacked at his home in an upmarket Durban lodge, the Pretoria News reported on Monday.

Several men entered Leon’s Caister Lodge flat early on Sunday morning, the report said.

He was bound and assaulted before his attackers stole valuables.

Inspector Michael Read said details of the incident were “sensitive”, but confirmed that a case had been opened and that police were investigating.

The younger Leon left on a trip abroad a few days ago, but DA caucus leader John Steenhuisen decried the attack.

“We are outraged. If this sort of thing is happening in supposedly secure retirement villages, it shows that the government has lost all control of the crime situation in the country,” he told the Pretoria News.

Caister Lodge manager Kees Pronk refused to comment. - Sapa
