    Loan shark in court for contravention of the National Credit Act

    An alleged loan shark was recently arrested and appeared before the Culcutta Magistrate Court on a charge of contravention of the Nationa Credit Act.

    LOAN SHARK ARRESTED IN JOINT OPERATION

    Major General Zodwa Mokoena, Provincial Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, highly praised the integrated multidisciplinary operation conducted by the Hawks’ Nelspruit-based Serious Commercial Crime Investigation in partnership with the National Credit Regulators (NCR).

    The operation took place on Wednesday, 1 June 2022 at Cunning Moor (B), Mpumalanga.

    A suspect was arrested on charges of Contravening Section 133 of the National Credit Act, Act 34 of 2005.

    “Information was received and followed by the team about the suspect who was operating an illegal cash loan business without being registered with the National Credit Regulator. 

    “During preliminary investigation, it was established that the suspect was retaining his clients’ bank cards to secure payments on their loans,”

    said Hawks spokesperson Captain Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi. 

    She added that a search and seizure warrant was obtained from the court and executed at his premises. 

    ID BOOKS, BANK AND SASSA CARDS SEIZED

    Furthermore, during the search, SASSA cards, bank cards from different banks, identity documents, 77 bank statements and 18 loan register books with clients’ names were seized for further investigation.

    Sekgotodi said the suspect was immediately arrested. 

    Major General Mokoena further gave a stern warning to those who keep identity documents and cards of others to secure repayment of debt. 

    She also advised the elderly to refrain from giving those hooligans their personal belongings as it is unlawful. 

    The General concluded by entreating the public to continually report such occurrences to the police.

    DUO ARRESTED FOR DEFRAUDING THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

    Meanwhile, in Bloemfontein, the case against two Senior Court Klerks working at the Warden Magistrates’ court has been postponed to 11 August 2022 after they were each granted bail of R4000 on Thursday.

    Thembisile Enie Ntshengila (38) and Zamambo Thulisule Mkhize (35) who were working as Senior Admin Clerks at Warden Magistrates’ Court allegedly defrauded the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development third party funds received from the clients of the department.

    The two suspects were arrested on Wednesday by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team based in Bloemfontein.

    “The suspects were entrusted to receive and bank the money for the department. They then used some of the money that they were supposed to bank for their own benefit,” said Hawks spokesperson Captain Christopher Singo.

    The incident took place between the period of 2018 and 2020.
