Fraud suspect walks free

THE failure, for the second time, of prosecution witnesses to attend court proceedings yesterday led to a Cape Town man walking free on a fraud charge.

THE failure, for the second time, of prosecution witnesses to attend court proceedings yesterday led to a Cape Town man walking free on a fraud charge.

Shaun Alfred Dirks allegedly used a fake salary slip to obtain vehicle purchase finance.

When prosecutor Faith Twala called his case in the Bellville specialised commercial crime court, she told magistrate Amrith Chabilall two of her witnesses were absent.

Chabilall refused her request for a postponement and removed the case from the court roll. - Sapa
