Cape Town Technical problems caused a delay on Thursday, in a case in which a female member of an alleged syndicate faces charges of fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering, in an airline ticket scam.
Zita Plew-Chisholm, 34, of Plumstead in Cape Town’s southern suburbs, appeared before magistrate Sabrina Sonnenberg, in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court.
She was arrested on January 18, 2013, and later released on warning.
During Thursday’s proceedings, it transpired that an additional (unspecified) charge had been added.
Prosecutor Jacques Smith said he had received representations in respect of the additional charge, from defence attorney Keith Gess.
