Badul case: accused due to oppose assets seizure

2010-09-09 00:00

FORMER police director Hariram Badul and others are set to oppose the seizure of their assets by the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU) in the high court.

Badul, his wife Monica, local businessman Sigamoney Pillay and his wife Rose, and Suresh Naraindath, a former police captain, have given the court notice to this effect. When the case came before Judge Jerome Mnguni yesterday, it was postponed by consent to November 23.

Badul and the other respondents were ordered to file their opposing affidavits on or before October 8, and the national director of public prosecutions must file replies by November 16.

Members of the AFU swooped on the Mountain Rise home of Badul and his five co-accused in a theft, fraud, corruption, racketeering and money laundering case on August 10 to take control of substantial assets, including houses, cars and — in Badul’s case — his R2,3 million pension.
