A brother and sister have appeared today in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court facing charges of Fraud, Uttering and Theft, following their arrest last week Thursday by the Hawks’ Commercial unit.
The accused allegedly siphoned approximately R3 million from the City of Cape Town between 2008 and 2010.
Kiaamdien Darries, 39, and Rughshana Darries, 38, through Imvusa Trading 1569 CC t/a RD Projects carried out maintenance work for the City without a valid Tax Clearance Certificate. Alleged shoddy workmanship on work undertaken by the entity raised the ire of the city leading to the probe of the company’s credentials.
The pair is expected back in the same court on the 30th of November 2016.
