Court interpreter in Court for corruption

Fraud Alert:

McAnderson Doctor, working as a Court interpreter at Galeshewe Court for the Department of Justice, appeared on Thursday, 22 June 2017 at Kimberley Magistrates Court on two charges of corruption and defeating the ends of justice. He was arrested on 21 July 2017 and his correct age is a subject of investigation as he possesses documents with conflicting dates of birth.

McAnderson allegedly facilitated bribery transaction between the Home Affairs’ Immigration Officer and illegal immigrant arrested for not having the necessary asylum documents. Preliminary investigation showed that the interpreter allegedly approached the Immigration Officer and tried to coerce him in exchange of money, not to produce the final rejection letter against the illegal immigrant to the court. A Hawks’ investigation into the matter ensued after the immigration officer reported the incident to the Department of home affairs’ management who later referred the matter to the Hawks for further investigation.

The case against McAnderson was postponed to 30 June 2017 for formal bail application and he remains in custody. More arrests on the matter are imminent.
