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.
