Johannesburg - The case against four Mountain Rise policemen accused of corruption was moved to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Thursday, the National Prosecuting Authority said.

NPA spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga said the case was postponed to August 20.

Former police director Hariram Badul, Suresh Maraindath, Yunus Khan, Bhekumuzi Nkabini and businessman Sigamoney Pillay face charges ranging from corruption to racketeering, fraud, money laundering and theft, allegedly committed between 2007 and 2009

The policemen were stationed at Mountain Rise police station in Pietermaritzburg when the offences were allegedly committed.

Badul has since been dismissed from the police service and disciplinary action is pending against his colleagues.

Mhaga said a team was dispatched to the station after whistleblowers alerted the authorities about fraudulent activities.

Their investigation found that assets could not be accounted for. Some of these were allegedly recovered at a farm owned by Badul.
