Physio to be sentenced for fraud

2012-10-15 21:16

Pretoria - A Rustenburg physiotherapist who confessed to defrauding the labour department's Compensation Fund will be sentenced at the end of the month.

On Monday the Pretoria Specialised Crime Court said pre-sentencing arguments would be heard on 30 October, after receiving "clinical reports" on Jones Mothemola Modau from correctional services and social workers.

Modau was arrested on three counts of fraud and 14 of money laundering involving about R476 150. He was released on a warning.

He was initially charged together with former labour department employees - Maxwell Ramaphosa, Samuel Mfeleng, and Johanna Kgabo Methi.

The trio's case had since been transferred to the Pretoria Magistrate's Court after a separation of trial.

Modau had pleaded guilty, the other three not guilty. The four allegedly operated as a syndicate processing claims for services not rendered.

Ramaphosa and Mfeleng were also embroiled in two other fraud cases involving the Compensation Fund.

The fund is a public entity run by the labour department. It pays for employees injured, or who contract diseases, at work. The fund also covers death as a result of these injuries or diseases.
