Self-confessed fraud physio awaiting sentencing for defrauding Department of Labour appears

Jurry Sehunoe (34), the self-confessed fraud physiotherapist still awaiting sentencing for defrauding the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF), is to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Crime Court tomorrow (December 13). 

Sehunoe, operating from Rustenburg in the North West Province pleaded guilty in October 2011 to defrauding the Department of Labour of R2,1-million. He pleaded guilty to 15 counts of fraud and 26 counts of money laundering. He is out on a bail of R3000.

After a series of postponements during the last appearance on November 20, the State confirmed that it had finally received the outstanding pre-sentencing reports from the Correctional Services and social workers, which are key in the sentencing procedures.

Sehunoe was originally charged in the matter with two co-defendants - Maxwell Ramaphosa and Samuel Mfeleng - who are both former employees of the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund.

After pleading guilty (Sehunoe), the matter of Ramaphosa and Mfeleng was transferred to the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court. The duo has pleaded not guilty. They are out on a bail of R3000.

Ramaphosa and Mfeleng are allegedly accused of fraud activities which include working as a syndicate with Sehunoe to swindle the Department of Labour by facilitating the submission and processing of fraudulent claims from the Department’s Compensation Fund.

The Compensation Fund is a public entity of the Department of Labour. The Fund provides compensation against occupational injuries and diseases sustained thereof.
