"Two court orderlies shot by suspects about to appear in Pretoria Mag Court, paramedics on scene, getaway car found Atteridgeville," police said in a tweet on social networking site Twitter.

The condition of the court officials was not known.

Beeld earlier reported that an accused in a robbery case apparently shot a court orderly in his side when he went down to the cells to take him up to the court room.

Another court orderly ran downstairs to see what was happening. A second accused grabbed him by the neck and he was shot in the head.

Both men escaped, reported a Beeld journalist.

The rights that are afforded to criminals in this country are so ridiculous...a police officer who hurt a criminal in detention gets a suspension non-negotiable...now the poor officers are on their own, anyway they are replacable
