RAF fraud: No trial date for former Durban attorney

2011-10-14 00:00

NO trial date has been decided yet in the case of former Durban attorney Ian Stokes, who is charged with theft of trust funds and fraud arising from his former Road Accident Fund business. Stokes abandoned his Umhlanga practice in September 2000 and fled the country. He was extradicted from the U.S. in 2004.

The case has been plagued by delays. Yesterday in the high court in Pietermaritzburg dates were finalised for an exchange of further particulars between the state and defence and the case was adjourned to December 19.
