Mdluli to appear on fraud charges

2011-12-14 08:23

Johannesburg - Suspended Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli will appear in the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Pretoria on Wednesday on fraud and corruption charges.

The charges relate to the purchase of two vehicles for his unit.

In September, Mdluli handed himself to authorities after fresh charges of fraud and corruption were brought against him.

According to the charge sheet, Mdluli "illegally, dishonestly and without authority carried out some police work, misused or sold information or material acquired during the course of his duties, abused his position of authority, breached the trust of police and tried to conspire with others to commit offences".

Mdluli allegedly used money from the unit's witness protection fund to pay salaries and buy houses and cars for girlfriends and their relatives, as well as his own relatives, who had been registered as covert intelligence officers.

In one case, investigators found that a Cape Town woman was registered as an intelligence operative and paid at least R18 000 a month. The woman's cousin and brother were also allegedly employed by crime intelligence and paid R8 000 a month.

In another case, Mdluli and three others are standing trial for their involvement in a decade-old love triangle murder.

      All these small arrests for fraud etc are only smoke screen to deter us, the public from the big fish. latley these headlines are for small and petty thefts while the big fish like zooma, mal emmer and co are wlaking away scot free. This is also zooma's attempt at being re-elected, so he had best be "seen" to be doing something constructive. Well the apple rots from the core. The only way forward is to get rid of the scum in charge, they are the route cause of all of this crap

    If we are getting serious on corruption involving Civil servants, we will need to double our Jail capacity. This is the tip of a huge iceberg.

    Shocking!!!...Can it get worse???

  • Mike - 2011-12-14 09:00

    Move over Selebi. Youve got company.

  • Itumeleng - 2011-12-14 09:00

    This is too much...Register reletives and girlfriends as operatives so that you can pay them every month. Did he think this will never get exposed. This is the dumbest criminal operation, and he was the chief of interlligence.

      I think Mduli was actually put in that position as an antonym for intelligence.

    I wonder if he will also collapse of shock when he find himself facing jail time? He is not so intelligent after all...

      RPhiri - 2011-12-14 09:16

      If he says his retarded it would work in his favour; I wouldn't find it hard to believe.

    It all starts at the top "THE ANC"....lets unite and get rid of them and put a more honest government in their place !

  • RPhiri - 2011-12-14 09:11

    Selebi needs a cellmate, the two can start off their bucket list at Sun City. It's suprising how our judicial system tends to prolong high profile cases, if it were an ordinary citizen; you would be convicted even before you committed a crime.

    Sis....and one just wonders if Mthethwa is not on the list too in the near future!

  • Ian - 2011-12-14 09:19

      nicholus.gamede - 2011-12-14 09:22
