Cape Town - The man dubbed "Helen Zille’s spook", Paul Scheepers, is expected back in the Bellville District Court on Thursday.

Scheepers, a crime intelligence cop, is facing 19 charges of fraud, 19 of corruption and one count of tender fraud relating to his company’s work for the Western Cape provincial government.

The reference to Zille stems from reports that the provincial government hired Scheepers in his private capacity to "debug" cellphones while he was still employed as a crime intelligence officer.

He last appeared in the Bellville District Court on November 15.

Scheepers was arrested in May 2015 after raids on his office at the SAPS crime intelligence's provincial premises in Bishop Lavis and the offices of Eagle Eye Solutions Technology in Southfield.

He was released on R2 000 bail.
