Mystery how docket was stolen
TWO MEN have been sentenced in the Keimoes Magistrate’s Court on charges of theft and defeating the ends of justice.
David John Carr, 53, and Dawid Frederick Nicolaas Therion, 34, were sentenced this week after they were found guilty of theft and defeating the ends of justice.
According to Hawks spokesperson, Captain Philani Nkwalase, a stolen police docket was found in Carr’s house in February this year.
The stolen docket implicated Therion in a drunk driving matter that dated back to July, 2008.
“It is, however, not clear when the docket was stolen,” Nkwalese said.
Carr and Therion were found guilty on both charges and Carr was fined R10 000, with an alternative 18 months imprisonment for theft and nine months imprisonment for defeating the ends of justice, wholly suspended for four years, with stringent conditions attached.
Therion was fined R7 000 with an alternative 18 months imprisonment for theft and nine months imprisonment for defeating the ends of justice, wholly suspended for four years.
In a separate matter, three men were sentenced in the Kimberley Magistrate’s Court for corruption.
Fahad Abdul Majeed, 32, Hussnain Shar, 24, and Naaem Nasir, 29, were sentenced to each pay a fine of R10 000 with an alternative three years imprisonment.
According to Nkwalase, Majeed and Shar were illegal immigrants and were arrested by Home Affairs immigration officers in Kimberley on May 25 this year.
“Hawks received a tip-off from a Home Affairs immigration officer about an offer of R8 000 that the two suspects made for their unlawful release.
“This was to be paid to Nasir at a specified location in Kimberley, where he was arrested,” Nkwalese said.
