50 new charges against Malema - reportComment on this story
Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority has brought 50 more charges against expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, it was reported on Sunday.
The City Press reported that a copy of the latest indictment against Malema revealed that he would face multiple charges of corruption, fraud, racketeering and money-laundering.
The Limpopo High Court heard at Malema's appearance on Friday that a charge of racketeering had been added to an initial charge of money-laundering against him. The case was postponed to April 23.
The City Press reported that the new charges would be added at Malema's next court appearance.
The case relates to the irregular awarding of a R52 million tender to On-Point Engineering. Malema's Ratanang Family Trust was an indirect shareholder in On-Point.
Malema reportedly told the newspaper the new charges were “politically concocted”. - Sapa
