THE Keimoes Mag­is­trate’s Court has con­victed two men on charges of fraud and de­feat­ing the ends of jus­tice.

Pro­vin­cial Hawks spokesper­son Capt Phi­lani Nk­walase said David John Carr and Dawid Fred­er­ick Ni­co­laas The­rion were found guilty in the wake of the dis­ap­pear­ance of a po­lice docket.

The­rion was im­pli­cated in the docket on drunk driv­ing charges.

Nk­walase said the docket was found in Carr’s ve­hi­cle and it was not clear when the docket was stolen from the po­lice.

“Carr and The­rion were found guilty on both charges, con­se­quently, Carr was fined R10 000 with an al­ter­na­tive 18 months im­pris­on­ment for theft and nine month im­pris­on­ment for de­feat­ing ends of jus­tice,” Nk­walase said.

“The sen­tence was wholly sus­pended for four years with strin­gent con­di­tions.”

He said The­rion was slapped with a fined of R7 000 with an al­ter­na­tive 18 months im­pris­on­ment for theft and nine month im­pris­on­ment for de­feat­ing ends of jus­tice.

This sen­tence was also wholly sus­pended for four years with strin­gent con­di­tions, he said. Nk­walase said on a sep­a­rate and un­re­lated mat­ter three men were also sen­tenced in the Kim­ber­ley Mag­is­trate’s Court this week for cor­rup­tion.

“Fa­had Ab­dul Ma­jeed, 32, Huss­nain Shar, 24, and Naaem Nasir, 29, were also sen­tenced for cor­rup­tion.

“The trio were sen­tenced to each pay a fine of R10 000 with an al­ter­na­tive three years im­pris­on­ment,

“Ma­jeed and Shar were il­le­gal im­mi­grants ar­rested by Home Af­fairs im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cers in Kim­ber­ley,” he said.

Nk­walase said the Hawks re­ceived a tipoff from a Home Af­fairs im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cer about an R8 000 of­fer from the sus­pects for their un­law­ful re­lease which was to be paid by Nasir at a spec­i­fied lo­ca­tion.A trap was set and he was ar­rested in Kim­ber­ley.
