Pretoria - The trial of three people accused of defrauding the department of labour's compensation fund was postponed until 12 March by the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Former fund employees Maxwell Ramaphosa, Samuel Mfeleng and Kgabo Johanna Methi are accused of 15 counts of fraud and 26 counts of money-laundering involving almost R500 000.

They have pleaded not guilty and are out on bail of R3 000 each.

They allegedly collaborated with Rustenburg physiotherapist Jones Modau to siphon money into his account from the Compensation Fund.

Modau pleaded guilty last year to the three counts of fraud and 14 counts of money-laundering.

He was sentenced to three years' house arrest, a further three years, conditionally suspended for five years, and two years for money laundering, which was suspended for five years.

He initially appeared with Ramaphosa, Mfeleng and Methi, but the cases were separated when the others pleaded not guilty.

Ramaphosa and Mfeleng are also involved in two other fraud cases involving the department of labour.
