Former Crime Intelligence Divisional Commissioner, Richard Mdluli, ex-Chief Financial Officer, Solomon Lazarus and Supply Chain Manager for the Secret Services Agency, Heine Barnard, are expected to appear at the Pretoria Specialized Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria on Thursday.
They will appear in connection with multiple counts of fraud, corruption, theft and defeating the administration of justice charges. The Investigating Directorate successfully declassified documents which enabled the case to be re-enrolled.
Mdluli allegedly abused the slush fund which was intended to assist the unit in performing its duties which include funding agents and purchasing of safe houses.
The fund was used to purchase vehicles for Mdluli and other officers. It was also used to pay trips to China and Singapore. Other crime intelligence officials were also benefactors of the trip.
