Cape Town - The case against suspended provincial police commissioner Arno Lamoer and five others will now be heard in the Western Cape High Court.

Magistrate Sean Lea accepted the State's recommendation that the pre-trial take place on August 28.

Lamoer, along with three top cops and two others, appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on Friday on 109 charges of corruption, fraud, money laundering and defeating the ends of justice.

The provincial commissioner and three brigadiers - Darius van der Ross, Sharon Govender and her husband, Colin Govender - together with businessman Salim Dawjee and his son Zameer handed themselves over at the Goodwood police station in April.

Dawjee allegedly gave money and gifts to the four senior police officers.

They are currently all out on bail.

Outside the court, Lamoer declined to comment, while Dawjee said he believed he would win his case.

"I have been giving [donations] my whole life to Saps and to the whole world," he said.

"There's nothing wrong with what I did. I'm being targeted."
