The Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Thursday postponed the Bosasa Operations (PTY) R1.8 billion fraud and corruption matter to 13 August 2021 for all the accused to be present in court.
Former Commissioner of Correctional Services (DCS), Linda Mti, former DCS Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Patrick Gillingham, and former Bosasa CFO, Andries Van Tonder were three of the four accused in attendance.
Investigating Directorate (ID) Spokesperson Sindisiwe Seboka said the fourth accused, former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi, sent a medical certificate “which was handed to the court by his lawyer who also told the court that Agrizzi would be testifying virtually at the State Capture Commission on Thursday.”
The case relates to four tenders awarded to Bosasa and its subsidiaries between August 2004 and 2007 which was valued at over R1.8 billion. “This was for rendering catering and training services, installation of CCTV cameras, installing the perimeter fencing and supplying television system and monitoring equipment.”Concluded Seboka.
