Two accused, Frank Joachim Grobelaar (66) and Christoffel Rudolf Botha (77) appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court on 20 October 2023 facing charges related to Tax Administration Act 28 of 2011. Both accused are members of Helicopter and Aviation CC.

It is alleged that between 2018 and 2020 both accused failed to submit their income tax returns. This resulted to SARS being prejudiced to sum of over R2.4 million.

The matter was reported to the Hawks’s Serious Commersial Crime Investigation based in Johannesburg for probing. Both accused were released on R5000 bail each and the matter was postponed to 20 November 2023.
