Self-confessed fraud physio awaiting sentencing for defrauding Department of Labour to appear in Pretoria Magistrate’s Court

Self-confessed physiotherapist Abel Diokana involved in the fraud and money laundering trial amounting to R949 175,11 involving the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) is to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Friday (June 28).

Diokana who is awaiting sentencing for his role in the fraud matter made a U-turn and pleaded guilty in April.

He together with six other co-accused and former employees of the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund - Maxwell Ramaphosa, Samuel Mfeleng, Kgabo Methi, Debbie Venter, Tendani Mukomafhedzi and Billy Ramskin - face four counts of fraud and two counts of money laundering.

The six other accused have not yet pleaded. The accused are out on a warning.

Diokana is alleged to have been working as a member of a syndicate to defraud the DoL’s Compensation Fund. It is alleged that the six former employees of the DoL’s CF, recruited Diokana to submit fraudulent claims which they would later process and make out payments which were later shared by members of the syndicate.

The Asset Forfeiture Unit has since been granted an order to do an inquiry on the assets of Diokana.

The Compensation Fund is a public entity under the administration of the Department of Labour. The Fund provides cover for workers injured during work, illness and death resulting during occupation.
