    UPDATE: Alleged tax fraudster remanded in police custody

    The alleged fraudster who was sought by the Nelspruit based Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation, Sifiso Mabuza (39), handed himself over to the office of the Hawks on Monday, 30 May 2022 through his lawyer.

    Mabuza was wanted for fraud and contravention of tax administration Act case against him.

    WANTED ALLEGED FRAUDSTER HANDS HIMSELF TO POLICE

    Mabuza’s appearance followed an investigation in relation to a fraud case which transpired during 2018 and 2021. 

    Hawks spokesperson, Captain Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi said during that time, Mabuza was the director of Shishila Rural Trading whereby he submitted fraudulent tax returns to  South African Revenue Services (SARS) and prejudiced the receiver of revenue an amount of R28 million. 

    “The investigation team traced Mabuza and he promised to hand himself over which he never did.

    “The court then issued a warrant for his arrest and the team utilised several tactics to assist in securing his appearance in court including enlisting the assistance of the public.”

    During his appearance in court, the investigation and prosecution teams brought to the attention of the court that Mabuza has more than ten properties.

    The properties in Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Durban and Limpopo were all registered under his name and the addresses have to be verified before his attempt at a bail application.  

    The matter was postponed for seven days until 3 June 2022.

    PUBLIC AND MEDIA APPLAUDED FOR ASSISTING

    The Provincial Head of the Directorate For Priority Crime Investigation Major General Zodwa Mokoena applauded members of the media and public for making effort to bring the accused before court after his denials. 

    Major General Mokoena also applauded the Investigation team and Prosecution for standing on the ground by persuading the court to remand him in custody. 

    She said without hesitation that there is no one above the law and that the Hawks will do their job without fear nor favour.
