WESTERN CAPE – The Bellville Serious Commercial Crimes Court ordered the attorney, Brian Albertus Bauman on 18 March 2022 to hand over more than R62 800 allegedly stolen from his clients who were meant to benefit from the Road Accident Fund (RAF).

The court ordered that the money be paid into the Criminal Asset Recovery Account belonging to the State in terms of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA). The order was made against the property of Bauman.

Bauman was further struck off from the roll of attorneys after he allegedly fleeced clients out of hundreds of rands.

This comes after Bauman was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crimes Court two years ago for defrauding his clients with Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims.

The owner of Bauman Attorneys, Brian Albertus Bauman from Bellville, specialised in RAF claims. He stole R14.8 million and fed his gambling addiction.
