Pieter Van Zyl (50), Leticia Nell (40) and Katerina Human (27) appeared in the Vanderbijpark Magistrate Court on Monday.



De Jager, who is in Grade R, was snatched from her mother outside Learskool Kollegpark last week. 



The suspects allegedly demanded an R2 million ransom. 



The case has been postponed for formal bail application as the state says it is still investigating the case and an identity parade is yet to be held.

The accused will all remain in custody. 

Her parents, Wynand and Angeline de Jager were also in court with Angeline failing to hold back the tears as the suspects made their appearance.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi was also in court, saying the department wants answers.
