Cape Town – The former director of a special needs academy in Paarl has been accused of embezzling funds for her own personal gain, the Hawks said on Wednesday.

The woman, 32, had full signing rights on the bank accounts of the entity, said Western Cape police spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha.

During December 2013 and November 2014, she allegedly diverted the funds into her own accounts and tampered with the academy's financial records to reflect that she had settled outstanding amounts with creditors.

The transactions were for about R300 000.

Ramovha said the suspect was expected to appear in the Bellville Commercial Crimes Court on June 14 on fraud and money laundering charges.
