Johannesburg - The case against Johannesburg businessman Zunaid Moti and his co-accused was dismissed by the Brits Regional Court, it was reported on Thursday.

"It seems the prosecutor wasn't ready to proceed with [the] case and [the] defence asked for [the] case to be thrown out," Moti told Eyewitness News.

"I was tried in the media and, for the first time, I feel a little bit better. The biggest impact was on my family, as my kids were teased about their dad being on the run."

In July, Moti was granted R40 000 bail after appearing in court in connection with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit murder.

Moti's co-accused, Carlos de Sousa, who appeared on charges of assault, armed robbery and kidnapping, was released on bail of R30 000.

In a statement made after a warrant for his arrest was issued in July, Moti vowed to clear his name.

"The warrant pertains to non-business related matters and Mr Moti and his lawyer, Mr Ian Small-Smith, are currently working with the relevant authorities to clear Mr Moti of all charges," his lawyers said.

The 37-year-old businessman is the owner of the luxury vehicle dealership, Future Exotics Lifestyle Emporium.

He is also the chairperson of property group Abalengani.
