Cape Town - The case of former Western Cape police commissioner Arno Lamoer and five other others on 109 charges of corruption and racketeering was postponed in the Western Cape High Court on Friday.

The case would return to court on August 14 for a pre-trial conference, Lamoer's advocate William Booth told News24.

This was to deal with outstanding issues, such as financial instructions for the legal fees of the accused police officers.

The six all face charges of corruption, racketeering and money laundering involving approximately R1.6m.

Lamoer's co-accused are Cape Town businessman Mohamed Saleem Dawjee and his son Zameer, Brigadier Kolindren Govender, his wife Sharon, and Darius van der Ross.

All allegedly received cash and expensive gifts from Dawjee in exchange for special treatment.

Lamoer was appointed to the post in November 2010 and retired in November 2015. He had been in the service for 25 years.

He was replaced by Lieutenant-General Khombinkosi Jula.
