Malema loses lawyers

2013-02-20 14:18

Johannesburg - Lawyers from Brian Kahn Attorneys said on Wednesday, they were no longer representing expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

Details about why the law firm had abandoned Malema's case were confidential, said lawyer Nicqui Galaktiou.

"We have not 'ditched him'... We no longer act for Malema," she said.

Earlier in February, Galaktiou said the firm had been instructed to file papers opposing an application made to the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria by the SA Revenue Services (Sars), to have Malema's estate sequestrated.

Malema had until 18 February to notify Sars whether he intended to oppose the application.

According to newspaper reports, Malema had failed to meet the deadline.

If the application by Sars is successful, all Malema's properties will be placed under curatorship and auctioned off to pay a reported R16m he owes Sars.

Malema also faces charges of fraud and racketeering related to the irregular awarding of a R52m tender to On-Point Engineering.

His Ratanang Family trust was an indirect shareholder in the engineering company.

That matter is scheduled to resume in court in April.

  • Luviwe Ka Jay - 2013-02-20 14:38

    If it does not rain it pours. I can foresee a long jail sentence for Juju, without the best lawyers money can buy. I wish this can be a lesson to more young people especially from previously disadvantaged backgrounds that dreed can destroy you in a record time.

  • Annelise Van Der Schyff - 2013-02-20 14:43

  • Teddy Beer - 2013-02-20 15:22

    If I could be Malemas lawyer for a second, I could advise him to swap his life with that of a wandering ownerless village dog. At least the dog is free to wander.

  • AndrĂ© Van Wyk - 2013-02-20 15:22

      marty.krog.7 - 2013-02-22 01:13

      @Mbongeni. No matter how you view Malema, he is still a criminal and will get his just rewards.

  • Sello Ka Homani - 2013-02-20 15:23
