Mpisane:Case adjourned yet again

2012-11-01 00:00

THE protracted delays in the trial of Durban housing contractor Shauwn Mpisane continued yesterday when the matter was adjourned until tomorrow.

Magistrate Blessing Msane was due to deliver his verdict on an application by Mpisane to forge ahead with the trial and end the countless adjournments that have blighted the matter.

But Msane said the volume of documentation lodged by both the defence and State needed careful consideration.

He adjourned the matter until tomorrow.

Mpisane, a wealthy tender beneficiary who has made a fortune off government contracts, has pleaded not guilty to 119 counts, all but one of them for alleged tax fraud.

She allegedly doctored her financial statements and certain invoices to reduce her tax burden to the South African Revenue Services.
