TWO SUSPECTS have been summoned to appear before the Kimberley Magistrate’s Court on Thursday after being served by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team in connection with allegations of fraud, money laundering and contravention of the Tax Administration Act 28 of 2011.

The suspects, who are 34 and 41 years old, were served with summons on Monday.

Northern Cape Hawks spokesperson Nomthandazo Mnisi said the South African Revenue Service (Sars) in Kimberley alleges that the main suspect made false entries on Corporate Income Tax returns and Value Added Tax returns between 2016 and 2017.

It is further alleged that the accomplice unlawfully benefited through acquiring, using and possessing properties that formed part of proceeds of unlawful activities.

“Sars suffered an actual loss of R415,000,” said Mnisi.
