Malema's hot-shot attorney
With news of his imminent arrest, expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema is armed with a "hot shot" lawyer to see him through the legal battle, it was reported on Saturday.
The Star newspaper reported that attorney Nicqui Galaktiou had previously and successfully defended among others Gijima, SA businessman Robert Gumede and former Zambian president Rupiah Banda's son, Henry Banda.
She is a director at Brian Kahn Incorporated Attorneys.
She has 12 years experience in motion and trial work and disputing resolution matters and is head of the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department.
Galaktiou is also a member of the International Bar Association.
Malema was expected to appear in a Polokwane court next week after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
The City Press reported on Friday that Malema faced charges of money laundering, corruption and fraud relating to his Ratanang Family Trust and its share holding in On-Point Engineering, a company that allegedly made millions from Limpopo government tenders.
