Additional suspects may be added in Phahlane corruption trial

Pretoria - More suspects could be added in the case against former acting national police commissioner Lieutenant-General Khomotso Phahlane, who has been charged with fraud, money laundering and corruption.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said more suspects would appear alongside Phahlane when he and his co-accused return to court.

Phahlane appeared on Monday with his wife Beauty and businessman Durandt Snyman in the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Pretoria. The matter was postponed to June 7 for further pre-trial procedures.

The trio are facing six charges of corruption amounting to R900 000.

They are also accused of contravening the provisions of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act.
