Cape Town - A mother of three charged with embezzlement was released on bail of R10 000 on Tuesday.

Najwa Taliep 49, was personal assistant to well-known auctioneer Julius Buchinsky, now 83.

Taliep, who was previously out on a warning, appeared in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court, before magistrate Sabrina Sonnenberg.

She convicted Talip on 631 counts of fraud last week. Taliep embezzled R961 081 from Buchinsky over a period of two years.

The bail conditions were that Taliep attend the sentencing proceedings, surrender her passport to the police, and not leave the Western Cape without the investigating officer’s permission.
