Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

A WAR­RANT has been is­sued for the im­me­di­ate ar­rest of a Paarl busi­ness­man fac­ing fraud charges in­volv­ing the sale of two heli­copters.

Barend Hen­drik Ober­holzer, 33, was to have pleaded to the charges on Thurs­day in the Spe­cialised Com­mer­cial Crime Court in Bel­lville, but was ab­sent when pros­e­cu­tor Juan Agul­has called his case.

The State al­leges he sold a 2008 model Robin­son 44 Raven 2 he­li­copter to a cou­ple for R3.1 mil­lion, but fraud­u­lently de­liv­ered an older model with con­sid­er­ably more fly­ing hours.
