Trial of two former employees of Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund to proceed in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court

by lloyd last modified 2013-07-26 17:56

26-July-2013

The fraud trial of two former employees of the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) alleged to have defrauded the department of R2,1-million will resume in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Monday (July 29).

Maxwell Ramaphosa (36) and Samuel Mfeleng (36) - both from Soshanguve in Pretoria face 15 counts of fraud and 26 counts of money laundering.

The accused are out on a bail of R3000.

During their last appearance in May their matter was postponed after two State witnesses who were expected to testify fell ill.

The two men are accused of being part of a syndicate working in collaboration with convicted fraudster Jurry Bonewamang Sehunoe, a physiotherapist from Rustenburg in North West, to siphon the department’s Compensation Fund. Sehunoe pleaded guilty last year and was earlier in the year handed a five year suspended sentence.

Ramaphosa and Mfeleng are also facing alleged fraud charges in two other separate cases currently on trial in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court.

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