Johannesburg - Confusion lingers over the current status of John Block and Christo Scholtz after the two failed to report to prison to begin serving their 15-year sentence despite having their appeal dismissed by the Supreme Court of Appeal earlier this week.
The SCA on Tuesday dismissed their appeal against a 15-year sentence for corruption and money laundering.
The former ANC Northern Cape chairperson and CEO of Trifecta Holdings Christo Scholtz were sentenced to 15 years imprisonment each after they were found guilty on charges of corruption and money laundering.
The charges relate to kickbacks that were offered to unduly influence the awarding of leases to Trifecta for government offices.
The two were then supposed to report to a correctional services facility on Thursday to start their sentence but failed to do so, resulting in reports that the two were now considered fugitives of justice.
