GAUTENG – A 41year old man, Molefe Msweli appeared in the Palm Ridge Specialised Commercial Crimes Court yesterday for fraud related allegations involving his late father’s estate worth millions.
It is alleged that Msweli allegedly submitted misleading fictitious documents to the Master of the High Court in Gauteng to claim the deceased’s estate as a sole beneficiary which resulted for the letter of executorship worth approximately R14 million issued.
Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation in Johannesburg immediately started with investigations based on the Master of the High Court’s suspicions of fraud on the deceased’s will allegedly submitted by Msweli in June last year, just two months after his late father’s passing.
Further investigation revealed that Msweli claimed over R14 million worth of immovable properties and insurance policies pay-out.
Msweli handed himself in at the Hawks’ office in Johannesburg accompanied by his lawyer and charged for fraud.
The court granted Msweli bail of R2000 and the case is postponed to 22 September 2021 for further investigation.
