Johannesburg - The trial of Durban businesswoman Shauwn Mpisane on fraud and other charges will start in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Her lawyer, Jimmy House, said the date had been set when she appeared in court in February.

Mpisane, who faces charges of fraud and forgery involving R4.7-million, owns the Zikhulise Cleaning Maintenance and Transport CC and Ukhozi Civil Cleaning and Construction.

The state alleges she submitted false invoices to claim VAT.

When Mpisane appeared in court on February 6, House asked the court to relax her bail conditions as there were times she was required to be away from the city.

The court decided that she would no longer be required to report to the Durban police station every Friday. - Sapa
