Judgment in the Dr Adams trial alleged to have defrauded Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund now set for 25 April

28 March 2017

The Pretoria Magistrates’ Court today announced that judgment in the trial of Dr David Michael Adams (41) alleged to have defrauded the Department of Labour entity, the Compensation Fund (CF) of R396 660-00 is now set for 25 April.

Judgment in the Dr Adams trial was on 14 March 2017 postponed because the defence had failed to submit their heads of argument on time to allow the State to hand its judgment. Now that the heads of argument have been submitted it will give the State time to hand the judgment next month.

Dr Adams is facing 29 counts of contravening Section 6 of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act, and 29 counts of theft. Dr Adams pleaded not guilty in the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court in September 2016.

The Doctor is alleged to have received unlawful payments from the Compensation Fund, and was arrested in 2010. During his arrest Dr Adams was running his practice in the North West.

Dr Adams is out on a warning.

The Compensation Fund is a public entity under the administration of Department of Labour. The CF provides cover to workers injured and/or who contract diseases at work.
