Two female company Directors appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 8 December 2021 charged with fraud and contravention of the pension fund Act related to employees’ contribution.
It is alleged that between January 2014 and March 2015, luggage manufacturing company executives, Alessandra Astalos (53) and Jasmith Ramila (51) deducted employees’ pension contributions from their salaries and allegedly failed to pay the funds into the pension fund scheme.
Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu of Gauteng Hawks said the Springsfield based liquidated company, Revelation, allegedly deducted approximately R154 000 collectively from employees on the stated period.
“A warrant of arrest was issued for the accused’s apprehension and the pair handed themselves in at the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation office in Germiston. They were immediately charged and appeared in court on the same day.”
The case against the duo is postponed to 09 February 2022. The two were granted R5 000 bail each.
