The Pretoria Specialized Commercial Crimes Court postponed the Bosasa Operations (PTY) R1.8 Billion fraud and corruption case to the 18 February 2021.This is to allow the defence more time to study the docket.
Investigating Directorate Spokesperson Sindidiwe Twala said Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi failed to appear and his lawyer said his failure is as a result of him still being in hospital.
“A warrant of arrest was issued against Agrizzi, however, it will not be enforced until the next court appearance.” Explained Twala.
The matter relates to four tenders awarded to Bosasa and its subsidiaries valued at over R1.8 billion between the periods August 2004- 2007.
