Johannesburg - The fraud case against ANC Northern Cape leader John Block was postponed to next year by the Kimberley Magistrate's Court on Friday.
The case would resume on February 2 2012, in the Northern Cape High Court, said National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga.
Block, Dr Gaston Savoi, Fernando Praderi, Patrick Lenyibi, Frank Mashilo and Nandipha Madiba are charged with fraud, corruption and contravening the Municipal Finance Management Act.
The charges relate to alleged irregularities in the acquisition of a water purification plant by the Sol Plaatjie Municipality in April this year.
It is alleged that the accused colluded with municipal employees to award a tender to Intaka Holdings.
All six have been granted bail.
