Cape Town – The National Prosecuting Authority on Friday announced it will be prosecuting Durban businessman Thoshan Panday.

Police officer Colonel Navin Madhoe was also charged.

The corruption charges relate to allegations that the two tried to bribe top KwaZulu-Natal police officer Johan Booysen.

The pair allegedly offered Booysen R2m to backdate a report on an investigation into accommodation tenders worth R60m.

In November last year, News24 reported that an independent forensic investigation report compiled by PriceWaterhouseCoopers was based on a tranche of documents seized from the police and Panday.

The report detailed how Panday allegedly bribed his way to riches with largesse and swagger, showering Provincial Police Commissioner Mmamonnye Ngobeni and other officers with gifts.
