Fugitive arrested at OR Tambo

Johannesburg - An alleged fraudster sought by South African police has been arrested by Interpol at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, local police said on Monday.

The 47-year-old man was expected to stand trial soon for fraud in the Southern Cape after he was caught on Saturday, Brigadier Sally de Beer said in a statement.

He was wanted in South Africa for four cases of fraud totalling R3m.

They allegedly were committed in the Knysna and George areas.

He fled the country to the United States 18 months ago, only to be arrested in Miami for possession of stolen goods.

He lived in a boat at the time.

After spending a year in prison, the US immigration and customs enforcement agency deported him to South Africa, where he was arrested.

      "An alleged fraudster" could be anyone in the ANC. This article is way too broad.

    If you want to find out his namedo a Google search "released miami deported fraud south africa"

  • Jonathan - 2011-03-22 13:16

    Or just go to the SAPS website click on NEWS where they publish his name. So much for protecting his identity.

      Jonathan - 2011-03-22 15:00

      I just realised thathe has already appeared in court for the charges, he absocnded hence his return to SA by interpol, therefore tere is no reason his name could not have been published by the reporter.
