One case for Fidentia

An application is to be brought before the Cape high court for all charges in the Fidentia investigation to be consolidated into one case before one court.

An application is to be brought before the Cape high court for all charges in the Fidentia investigation to be consolidated into one case before one court.

Defence attorney Rashad Khan yesterday told the Cape Town regional court it was his intention to launch an application before the Cape high court for three different court orders.

The first of the three embezzlement cases, involving former Fidentia boss J Arthur Brown and investment companies Fundi and Infinity, was to have started in the Cape regional court yesterday but was postponed to December 10.

The first order would compel the consolidation of all investigations into one case before one court.

The effect of the second order would be to stop all pending prosecutions until a cut-off date had been set by the high court for the marathon investigation.

The cut-off date would be the subject of the third order, Khan said. - Sapa
