Acquitted Mabaso to get assets back

2013-07-23 00:00

THE wheels of justice are already in motion for acquitted KwaZulu-Natal businessman Jabulani Mabaso to get back his assets worth around R60 million.

Mabaso, along with his company Indiza Infrastructure Solutions, was found not guilty of all charges of defrauding the Education Department in relation to a stationery contract last week. He confirmed at the weekend that his lawyers have contacted the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU) requesting the return of his assets.

He forwarded The Witness the reply received from AFU boss Knorx Molelle confirming that the AFU has already begun making arrangements to release Mabaso’s assets.

Molelle said in the letter the first step would be to rescind the restraint order issued by the court over the assets and obtain a detailed account from the curator on the status of the assets.

Mabaso said his legal fees had cost him around R9 million.
