THREE former employees of the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund and a physiotherapist are to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Crime Court tomorrow (December 14) on charges of fraud and money laundering.

The three former civil servants are Maxwell Ramaphosa, Samuel Mfeleng, Kgabo Methi, and a physiotherapist Jones Modau.

The defendants face three counts of fraud and 14 counts of money laundering involving about half a million rand. The three former officials of the Department of Labour are allegedly accused of colluding with Modau by siphoning the Compensation Fund by creating fictitious claims and channeling the money into their accounts.  

The four accused are all out of custody on warning.

Mfeleng and Ramaphosa are also involved in two other fraud related cases. In the first, they face 22 counts of fraud totaling more than R3,8-million and 28 counts of money laundering amounting to more than R860 000. They are out on a bail of R3000.

In another case they are part of a group of seven alleged accused including a physiotherapist where they are accused of defrauding the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund. In this case they face four counts of fraud and two counts of money laundering amounting to about R1-million, and are out of custody on warning.   

The Compensation Fund is a public entity of the Department of Labour. The Fund provides cushion for workers injured or disabled at work or diseases sustained thereof.
