More than 100 charges were withdrawn against businesswoman Shauwn Mpisane relating to alleged fraudulent invoices.

More than 100 charges were withdrawn against businesswoman Shauwn Mpisane relating to alleged fraudulent invoices in a Durban court on Friday.

Prosecutor Arno Rossouw told the Durban Regional Court that the charges against Mpisane had been withdrawn by the National Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mpisane was appearing in connection with the alleged inflating of her business invoices by almost R5 million to cut her tax bill.

Earlier in January, the State also withdrew more than 50 charges of fraud, forgery and uttering of a forged document against Mpisane.

She still faces charges in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court, where she stands accused of interfering with a State witness related to the tax fraud case. - Sapa
