Cape Town - A woman accused of defrauding the Raya Hotel Group was due to appear in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Wednesday.

Mymona Creighton faced 250 counts of fraud involving R10 263 813 and one charge of money laundering involving the Raya Hotel Group, which owns the Capetonian Hotel in Cape Town and the Balmoral Hotel in Durban.

Creighton began working for the hotel group 10 years ago as the assistant to the accountant and seven years later was promoted to the post of accountant.

She was based at the head office in Cape Town and was responsible for the payment of the group's creditors, and had to present cheques for payment to the group's management for signature.

The prosecution alleged that she either deleted or changed the details of the payees on cheques, after payment had been authorised by management.

It was alleged the cheques would then be made payable to fictitious people, and the proceeds channelled into her personal bank accounts.

To cover her tracks, Creighton was alleged to have recorded the correct cheque details on management payment schedules, but intercepted and destroyed bank-processed cheques as they arrived back from the bank.
