"Police also confiscated several documents and proof of payments that allegedly implicates [him] in this regard".

Adams allegedly charged fees amounting to thousands of rands, Kock said.

Adams appeared briefly in the Douglas Magistrate's Court on Tuesday and his case was postponed to November 30 for a bail application.
