Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODPUZZLES -

Bobroff & Part­ners to draw up a bill of costs for De la Guerre and re­fund her the dif­fer­ence be­tween this bill and what she was charged. Sub­se­quent at­tempts by the Bo­broffs to ap­peal to the Supreme Court of Ap­peal and the Con­sti­tu­tional Court failed. • The Pre­to­ria High Court or­ders the Law So­ci­ety to carry out an ur­gent in­spec­tion of Bobroff & Part­ners’ ac­counts and to re­port back within 30 days. • The Law So­ci­ety’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion finds ev­i­dence that the Bo­broffs failed to keep proper ac­count­ing records, over­charged their clients, did not prop­erly put clients’ fees through a busi­ness ac­count, em­ployed var­i­ous tac­tics to re­duce their in­come tax and VAT li­a­bil­i­ties un­law­fully, and de­layed pay­ments to clients. It also found that Dar­ren Bobroff had forged a busi­ness cheque in favour of client in or­der to pay it into his own bank ac­count. The Law So­ci­ety then launched its own counter ap­pli­ca­tion to Matthew Gra­ham’s case to have the Bo­broffs struck from the roll of at­tor­neys, first giv­ing the Bo­broffs the op­por­tu­nity to re­spond to the case against them. • The Pre­to­ria High Court or­ders the Bo­broffs’ sus­pen­sion from the roll of at­tor­neys pend­ing the Law So­ci­ety’s ap­pli­ca­tion to have them struck from the roll and or­ders the sale of the Bo­broffs’ prac­tice to be stopped. • Ron­ald and Dar­ren Bobroff and Dar­ren’s wife, Lisa, flee to Aus­tralia af­ter be­ing in­formed by the Direc­torate for Pri­or­ity Crime In­ves­ti­ga­tion that they should present them­selves for ar­rest on charges of fraud and money laun­der­ing and pos­si­ble theft of money that should have been held in trust.
