Broadway was granted bail of R250 000 and was requested to pay R100 000 on the spot and the remainder by March 28.
Broadway is expected to share the dock with alleged poaching kingpin Frank Barends on Friday at the Cape High Court alongside 25 others.
Barends and his co-accuseds are currently on trial where they face 534 charges, some which include illegal possession of abalone, racketeering and corruption all relating to activities in and around the Gansbaai area.
Among the suspects are a police officer, Barends’ wife Josephine and his bookkeeper Sarah Dunsdon.
Broadway previously represented Barends and some of the other accused who cops say are part of a massive syndicate.
