14 March 2017
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 was today postponed in the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court.
The defence in the matter failed to submit their heads of argument on time to allow the State to hand its judgment.
The trial has now been postponed to 28 March 2017.
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.
He 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.-ENDS-
