AFU seizes R2.1m of fraud doctor's assets

2012-02-03 21:34
Johannesburg - The Assets Forfeiture Unit (AFU) has seized assets worth R2.1m from a physiotherapist convicted of defrauding the labour department, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said on Friday.

The order against Dr Jurry Sehunoe was granted by the North Gauteng High Court, NPA spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga said in a statement.

"The curator has today [Friday] executed the order and attached immovable property in the form of a house at 19 Baulienia Avenue, Geelhout Park, Rustenburg, household items as well as two vehicles," he said.

Sehunoe, who is based in Rustenburg, was found guilty of defrauding the labour department's Compensation Fund of more than R5m last year after pleading guilty to 28 counts of money laundering and 15 cases of fraud.

He will be sentenced in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crime Court on March 28.

Mhaga said Sehunoe was part of a syndicate which submitted fictitious claims suggesting that employees had been treated for injuries and other illnesses suffered on duty.

Two former officials at the Compensation Fund are accused with him, but they have yet to plead.

The trial of Maxwell Ramaphosa and Samuel Mfeleng starts in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on February 22.
