PRETORIA - Former Acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane and two co-accused have been charged with fraud and corruption worth R900,000.
The lieutenant-general, his wife and car dealer Durandt Snyman appeared in the Pretoria Commercial Crimes Court on Thursday.
The trio were released on bail of R10,000 each.
The charge sheet lists six cars which Phahlane and his wife, Beauty, were in possession of over a period spanning seven years.
The cars include a Land Rover Discovery, Mercedes Benz C-Class Sedan, as well as two bakkies bought from or sponsored by Snyman.
