DURBAN - The sentencing of Mahatma Gandhi's great-granddaughter has been postponed to December.
Ashish Lata Ramgobin was convicted of fraud and forgery amounting to R6.2 million on Monday in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court.
She allegedly swindled a Durban businessman by claiming that she had won a R20 million tender to supply the Netcare Hospital Group with linen.
However, an investigation revealed that the tender was never advertised or awarded.
The NPA’s Natasha Kara said: “The matter was set down for today for sentencing, however, the defence asked for a pre-sentencing report. It is for this reason that the matter was postponed to 21-22 December.”
