JOHANNESBURG - Five of the seven people charged with corruption, money laundering and fraud related to corruption at Bosasa have been granted R20,000 bail each.

They include former Bosasa executive Angelo Agrizzi who recently testified at the state capture commission of inquiry.

The group appeared in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Wednesday afternoon.

The Hawks say two of the suspects are not in Gauteng but arrangements are being made for their cases to be processed in the province.

The arrests follow investigations into the misappropriation of R1.6 billion in tenders awarded to Bosasa by the Correctional Services Department and its affiliates.

The National Prosecuting Authority’s spokesperson Phindi Louw-Mjonondwane says the warrants of arrest were issued on Monday.

“Our new National Director of Public Prosecutions has made it very clear that where elements of criminality are detected, where there are people who can be held liable no matter their social standing or whether they are rich or poor, everyone will be treated equally in the eyes of the law. And this is proof thereof.”

The case has now been postponed to 27 March for further investigation.
