The abuse of the Secret Services Slush fund case, where high profile ex-Crime Intelligence senior personnel are involved, has been transferred to the Pretoria High Court and will be heard on the 10th of November.
Former Crime Intelligence Divisional Commissioner, Richard Mdluli, Crime Intelligence ex-Chief Financial Officer, Solomon Lazarus and Former Supply Chain Manager, Heine Barnard, appeared before the Pretoria Specialized Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria on Thursday.
They appeared in connection with multiple counts of fraud, corruption, theft and defeating the administration of justice charges. The trio will appear in November where for the first time in nine years they will face the charges with regard to the slush fund.
Mdluli 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.
