MARCH 16, 2016

The trial of Eastern Cape police spokesperson Marinda Mills will begin in June, the Zwelitsha Magistrate’s Court heard on Tuesday.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Tsepo Ndwalaza confirmed that the matter was postponed until June 8 and 9 at the King Williams Town Regional Magistrates Court.

“The investigation is complete and the defence has received the dockets from the state.”

Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi previously said Mills allegedly signed a fraudulent claim for an individual who was meant to attend a meeting.  

“The person claimed for the trip and she signed it off, knowing that the person did not go to the meeting,” he said at the time.
