Tiego Moseneke, brother of deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, is lobbing the National Prosecuting Authority to drop nine charges of fraud and corruption involving R40m against him and business associate Gopalang Makokwe.
Business Day reports that this case is one of many headaches facing Tiego Moseneke. Last month, he was struck off the roll of attorneys over money alleged to have gone into his personal account, rather than into his legal trust account. Moseneke said these representations were aimed at getting the State to drop the charges. The charge sheet is founded on a range of averments that cant sustain those charges. We want to have the charges dropped and we want a final decision, he said. Full Business Day report
