Covid-19 relief funds: Five arrested for alleged fraud, theft

 

 

Five people have been arrested for Covid-19 Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) irregularities.

The investigation, registered at Brooklyn police station, resulted in the arrest of two women and three men for irregularities linked to the UIF Covid-19 relief fund.

The five individuals are aged between 25 and 68, said Hawks spokesperson Colonel Katlego Mogale.

“The suspects were traced to various residences in Soshanguve, Atteridgeville and Mamelodi. Five vehicles, including an Evoque, were recovered from the scenes, as well as other items suspected to have been bought with the monies which weren’t meant for the suspects,” said Mogale.

The Range Rover Evoque retails for over R700 000.

They will appear in the Pretoria Commercial Crimes Court on Monday on charges of fraud, theft and money laundering.
