Johannesburg - Four people accused of defrauding the Road Accident Fund of R6m appeared briefly in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Lesego Metsi said their trial was postponed to April 21 next year.

Johannes Kruger, 28, Mariska Barnard, 23, legal clerk Marthie Mulder, 39, and her husband Joubertus, 41, were allegedly linked to a syndicate which had defrauded the RAF of about R6m since 2007.

The Mulders have been accused of being the masterminds in the case.

Metsi said Kruger and Barnard apparently posed as medical doctors for the submission of the fraudulent claims.

Mulder allegedly defrauded her employer by processing and submitting false and fraudulent claims to the Road Accident Fund.

She allegedly used the employer's trust account to channel claim payments to another account.

Their bail of R25 000 each was extended.
