Outstanding affidavits won’t affect start of Koko’s fraud trial

Matshela Koko

Outstanding affidavits in the case of fraud, corruption and money laundering against former Eskom CEO, Matshela Koko have no bearing on the start of the trial. This is according to the Investigating Officer who could not be named for security reasons.

The officer told the Middleburg Specialised Commercial Crimes court that they are awaiting affidavits from some witnesses in Germany and the United States of America, as well as two expert reports from a data analyst and from a forensic auditor.

Other affidavits received from international witnesses are being translated into English. The case involves charges of corruption in an R2 billion control and instrumentation tender.

Koko and 18 co-accused including his wife and a stepdaughter applied for the case to be struck off the roll after numerous postponements. Magistrate Stanley Jacobs is expected to hand down judgment on the accused’s application.
