LIMPOPO – Jennifer Vanesia Deville (54) was sentenced to pay R10 000 or 12 months imprisonment and further R7 000 wholly suspended for five years. The case against her co-accused was withdrawn, said Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke.
Deville and her co-accused were arrested by Hawk’s Serious Commercial Crime Unit and Crime Intelligence members. The members were following a tip-off about two women who planned to defraud a local bank by providing fraudulent documents to withdraw money from the client’s account.
“The suspects were arrested inside the Burgersfort bank whilst trying to deceive the consultant with their fraudulent documents. One identity document believed to belong to a genuine client of the bank was seized during the arrests,” Maluleke said.
Both suspects appeared before the Burgersfort Magistrates Court on 18 July 2017, for formal bail application, where the bail against the pair was successfully opposed
