A 51-year-old suspect linked to R2.5 million fraud is expected to appear in a Johannesburg court on Tuesday. 

The suspect linked to the R2.5 million fraud was arrested by the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Unit at Berea.

According to a police statement, Tshenelo Company was allegedly awarded a tender by the Ga-Segonyana Municipality in August 2016. Upon completing their tasks the company was expecting a payment amounting to R2.5 million.

“It, however, transpired that the company’s banking details were changed and the money was paid into a false account.”

The suspect is expected to appear in Kuruman Magistrate Court on Tuesday.
