20 Years imprisonment for fraud

NORTH WEST: The Rustenburg Magistrates' Court has on Thursday, 2 March 2017, sentenced Brian Viljoen (57) and Hilton Roberts Boyce (40) to 20 years and 15 years imprisonment respectively after they were found guilty of fraud and money laundering.

Both men were arrested on 25 September 2015 after Hawks investigations revealed that a credit clerk of a certain firm had fraudulently transferred R25 million to Viljoen and Boyce.

The duo have been out on bail until their sentence was handed down.
