South Africa: Prasa Case Postponed Again

15 October 2019

The Port Elizabeth Specialised Commercial Crime Court has again postponed the theft and fraud case against former acting chief executive of the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (PRASA) Mthuthuzeli Swartz and Syed Nadhir Mohiudeen, a Cape Town-based businessman.

On Friday 11 October the court postponed the case to 25 October.

Swartz and Mohiudeen are facing fraud charges amounting to R1.5 million. They are accused of selling about 42km of railway line that belonged to the state. The railway line runs between Sterkstroom and Maclear in the Eastern Cape.

The accused were not at court on Friday.

Reasons for previous postponements were that the state wanted to add more charges and the defence wanted more time to study the charge sheet.
