The fight against corruption

2012-12-10 09:14

As part of World Anti-Corruption Day young South Africans were asked what they want the government to do against corruption in their community. Watch. WATCH

Durban - Durban businessman Toshan Panday and his co-accused Colonel Navin Madhoe appeared briefly in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban on Monday on bribery and corruption charges.

The matter was postponed to 11 February 2013 for the State to finalise its investigation.

Panday and Madhoe are accused of trying to bribe KwaZulu-Natal Hawks' boss Major-General Johan Booysen.

They allegedly offered him R2m to backdate a report on an investigation into accommodation tenders worth R60m.

The State said it had new evidence, consisting of recordings of intercepted telephone calls.

Defence attorney Jimmy Howse, for Panday, asked the State to provide him with the recordings.

He also sought access to outstanding items that would be used as evidence.

The State had to provide the defence with copies of hard drives, flash drives and computer discs.
