News fraud charges for NAfiz Modack and family
Seven people along with alleged Cape Town underworld boss Nafiz Modack appeared in court on yesterday on charges of racketeering, fraud, money laundering, uttering and contravention of the VAT Act.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said Modack, his mother, younger brother, and SA Revenue Service employee Faried van der Schyff appeared in court on Wednesday for allegedly stolaling R46m from Sars through false VAT claims. He said further investigations show a potential loss of R219m to SARS as the fraudulent claim had not yet been paid out.
Ntabazalila said the case was postponed to November 22 for the accused to sort out legal representation and to request further particulars.
While his mother was granted a R5 000 bail, Modack remains in police custody as he faces charges relating to orchestrating the murder and attempted murder of Kinnear last year.
