Apology to advocate Muhammed Khan
In our piece on Friday, April 5, 2019 on page 3 headlined “Advocate’s tax fraud charges”, we incorrectly referred to Advocate Muhammed Khan as having “faced 462 charges relating to tax fraud. These took place from 2006 to 2017”.
We also stated: “...he is charged with failing to submit income tax returns, failing to submit VAT 201 returns and failing to submit PAYE returns.”
Advocate Khan’s attorney, M Arnold, points out: “Client has not been charged with fraud but with failure to submit tax returns to which he has pleaded guilty, and for which he has been convicted.
’’Sentence would have been passed on 4 April 2019, but was postponed to 26 April 2019.... Our client has been an attorney since September 1979 and has never been charged or convicted of fraud.”
The Cape Times apologises unconditionally to Khan for the error and regrets any inconvenience caused to him.
