Johannesburg - Hawks official Kobus Roelefse has told the Zondo commission that Tiso Blackstar associate editor Ranjeni Munusamy had been contacted in 2014 regarding the allegations that she unlawfully benefited from the looting of the crime intelligence's slush fund.
Roelofse was testifying for a third day at the inquiry.
On Wednesday, he told the commission that money had been transferred from a Centurion-based Atlantis Motors dealership to a WesBank Vehicle Finance account belonging to Munusamy in 2008.
“The amount R143 621 78 it was paid from the Atlantis business account to Wesbank finance account. The settlement agreement was registered under the name of Miss Ranjeni Munusamy, as far as I know, she is a journalist. The amount was debited on July 30 2008,” Roelofse testified.
On Thursday, Roelofse sought to clarify the spelling on the account. He had stated that on the bank statement it had been written "Ranjeni Munusamy", but on further checking his documentation Munusamy's name was written as "Navaranjeni".
