Johannesburg - The wife of a Centurion NG Church minister has appeared in court for allegedly stealing R6.3m from her workplace, Beeld reported on Saturday.

Anchen Lindeque, 36, appeared in the Pretoria Commercial Court on Friday on a theft charge.

Lindeque, a qualified lawyer, was arrested in October 2011 after R6 259 241.66 disappeared from a law firm where she was employed.

She was a co-director as well as in charge of bookkeeping and financial management at the firm at the time she is alleged to have siphoned the money out of the firm's trust account into various other accounts.

The money transfers took place between 2008 and 2009.

She allegedly covered her tracks by creating false journal entries.

Lindeque, a mother of four, is expected to enter her plea when court proceedings resume in August.

She is currently out on bail of R5 000.
