The Bosasa fraud and corruption case is back in court today. EWN reports that the case concerns prison tenders worth over R1.8 billion that Bosasa and its subsidiaries picked up between 2004 and 2007.
The four accused in the matter are:
- former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi,
- former CFO Andries van Tonder,
- former Correctional Services Commissioner Linda Mti, and
- the department’s ex-CFO, Patrick Gillingham.
In the last court appearance in December, Agrizzi’s trial was separated from the others due to his ill health. This caused delays in the proceedings. The defence opposed the separation, but the court ruled in favour, considering potential prejudice to Agrizzi’s co-accused and the State if it was not expedited.
This Wednesday, it is anticipated that Agrizzi and his co-accused’s cases will be heard independently. Agrizzi has been excused from appearing in person for health reasons.
