Fidentia man owes SPCA R20 000

2013-03-07 18:55
Cape Town - Ex-Fidentia boss J Arthur Brown has to pay almost R20 000 in boarding fees for three farm animals he never collected, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Lara Robertson said Brown had booked an old Doper ewe, a dark chestnut Welsh pony and a lard cross pig into the boarding facility in November 2011.

He had done this because he was moving house from Hout Bay to Durbanville.

He had acquired the animals for his daughter.

"Brown and Lize van den Berg jointly assumed responsibility for paying these costs," Robertson said.

He never collected the animals and they were kept for 14 weeks, she said.

Attempts to contact him were apparently futile.

The organisation obtained a judgment this month against Brown to the amount of R19 024 plus interest.

Robertson said a default judgment was taken against him as he did not defend the matter.

"A warrant of execution has now been issued against Brown," Robertson said.

Brown is on trial in the Western Cape High Court, in Cape Town, for fraud, corruption, theft and money-laundering, linked to Fidentia and several companies.
