The case against former Crime Intelligence head Richard Mdluli and two colleagues allegedly started off as a seemingly simple arrangement to pay for the top policeman's cars, airline tickets and personal travel expenses. 

However, the State alleged it escalated to a complicated plan of jobs in Crime Intelligence for family and their friends, including Mdluli's former wife, and a web of payments to make sure he got a better deal out of selling his private BMW.

A property leasing company also allegedly arranged that Secret Service Account (SSA) money would help him pay off the property his girlfriend, and then wife lived in.
