Travel agents in plea agreement

2010-08-31 12:33
Cape Town - Two of the three remaining travel agents facing charges in the parliamentary travel fraud case have pleaded guilty.

In terms of a plea agreement with the State, Graham Geduldt and Soraya Beukes were on Monday sentenced to three years of correctional supervision, plus seven years' jail conditionally suspended for five years.

This was the same sentence handed down to former travel agency boss Estelle Aggujaro.

The agents were charged with using vouchers meant only for MPs' air travel to pay for accommodation and car rentals.

Most of the benefit of the fraud went to MPs, some 30 of whom have already entered into plea agreements.

The third accused Mpho Lebelo's next appearance will be on September 17.
