Wetnose directors spat in court

2010-08-06 09:18
Pretoria - Tracy Forté, who was removed as director of Wetnose, is accused in court documents of spending money donated to an animal rescue centre for her own account.

In the court documents on behalf of the board of directors of Wetnose, it is alleged that Forté issued false cheques which were drawn on the bank account of Wetnose, and that she has direct or indirect interests in contracts with the centre.

Forté wanted an urgent application to be heard in the South Gauteng High Court on Thursday to have her suspension from Wetnose on July 26 declared void.

The court scrapped the case from the roll because it’s not urgent enough. The case was placed on the roll again on August 11.

Forté, 45, from Pretoria, has six respondents on her application, including the board of Wetnose.

According to her, the notice of suspension states that there is a “suspicion of irregular activities” against her.

She says she has been the subject of criticism for years, and is used to having her name sullied by opponents of the good work done by Wetnose.

According to her, certain directors, Nerlene Prinsloo, John Boglades and Fiona Manual and Anneke van Zyl agreed “behind my back” to have her dismissed.

Prinsloo, a vet from Bronkhorstspruit, alleges Forté used money which was donated to Wetnose “for her own benefit”.

According to Forté, these directors’ suspicions are “completely unfounded”. She says she always behaved in the best interest of Wetnose.
