THABA NCHU – Two suspects are expected to appear in the Thaba Nchu Magistrate Court today after they were arrested for corruption and defeating the ends of justice.
On Friday 11 August 2023 at about 21:30, Selosesha Public Order Policing members arrested a 28-year-old male at a house in Zone 4, Selosesha and found 42 Smart card IDs, one Lesotho Passport, 55 Republic of South Africa issued ID books, 105 bank cards from different RSA banking institutions and a birth certificate in his possession.
The suspect appeared in court and he was remanded in custody until 24 August 2023 for formal bail application.
In a turn of events, on Tuesday 15 August 2023, two people the suspect’s were arrested after they allegedly acquired the suspect’s expired passport, which was booked as an exhibit, took it to be updated and returned it to court so that their brother could be released from custody.
The ever-attentive investigating officer took note of their actions and arrested the two for defeating the ends of justice, corruption and contravening the Immigration Act. The case was handed over to the Free State Anti-Corruption Unit for further investigation.
The two, a 24-year-old woman and her 30-year-old husband, will appear in the Thaba Nchu Magistrate Court today, Wednesday 16 August 2023.
