Two men held for R13m tender fraud
Johannesburg - Two people were arrested by the Hawks in Pretoria and the Western Cape on Friday morning for alleged tender fraud, Gauteng police said.
Police spokesperson Tshisikhawe Ndou said: "It's alleged that the suspects were involved in the rigging of a tender worth R13m which was awarded for guarding and special services at the National Prosecuting Authority's premises in KwaZulu-Natal in 2006."
The tender contract was subsequently terminated in 2009.
Ndou said one of the arrested men was a former employee of the NPA who evaluated security and the risk environment.
The two, aged 33 and 41, face charges of fraud and corruption and will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday.
More arrests were expected soon, said Ndou.
