A labour department inspector and a teacher are expected to appear in the Durban Commercial Crime Court on Tuesday on fraud charges, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

"In the early hours of this morning [Tuesday] we arrested two suspects aged, 33 and 37, in Sunnyside and Adams Mission for fraud," Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

"It is alleged that the inspector from the department of labour asked the teacher to recruit people who were not employed at that time so that she would fraudulently apply for UIF on their behalf," Mdunge said.

A fictitious company was created and those people were listed as the company's employees.

Investigations revealed that R70,000 had been paid out to them so far, Mdunge said.
