Tzaneen – A Limpopo law firm director has been arrested for theft and fraud amounting to R1.9m, said the Hawks.

The priority crime investigations unit spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said the director allegedly claimed money from the Road Accident Fund on behalf of unnamed clients.

"After the money was paid into the trust account, he withdrew all of it for himself without paying out the clients," said Maluleke.

The suspect appeared in the Tzaneen Magistrate's Court on Thursday and was granted R5 000 bail.

The case was postponed to April 12 for further investigation.
