Johannes Petrus Meintjes (52) and Mavis Joy Meintjies (44) appeared in the Polokwane District Court on Tuesday, 9 March 2021 for alleged fraud and theft.
It is alleged that during July 2018 Mr Meintjies (manager) and Mrs Meintjies (admin clerk) were employed at a cash loan company in Polokwane. The pair connived to manipulate the company financial books for over a period of two years which resulted in the company losing over R105 000-00.
The company discovered the suspicious transactions during an internal audit.
A case of fraud was opened and referred to the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation. The two suspects were traced and arrested in Tzaneen on 9 March 2021.
Mr and Mrs Meintjies were each granted R500-00 bail and their case was postponed to 14 April 2021 for Regional Court date.
