Man appears in Cape Town court for income tax fraud of R3mln

CAPE TOWN, September 20 – A 48-year-old man is expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday for income tax fraud of several million rand, the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) said.

Hawks spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha said that during the period 2008-2011 Moegamat Shafiek allegedly purposefully under declared his income which resulted in the South African Receiver of Revenue (SARS) losing approximately R3.1 million.

Khan was sought on a warrant of arrest after a case against him was registered in 2011, culminating in his arrest by the Hawks on September 15.

He appeared in court on the same day facing charges of Fraud and Income Tax Act 58/1962. The matter was postponed to Wednesday for bail application.
