By Ayanda Sitole

on Tuesday where they were facing 102 charges of fraud and theft involving about R8 million.

Dennis Stephen Klassen (58), a former director and chief operation officer of the Red Ants, and his daughter, 38-year-old Rochelle Klassen Adonis, a former director of the Red Ants’ Cape Town branch, are accused of acting together in defrauding the company of assets and shares.

These crimes are alleged to have taken place between  2010 and 2013.

The duo was ordered to appear before the court following a lengthy investigation by a specialised team of detectives from the South African Police Service (SAPS).

Their case has been postponed to 11 March 2016 for prosecution.

Klaasen also has a pending case of theft and fraud against him currently being heard in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court, for which he is also out on bail.
