Suspects nabbed for allegedly extorting Tsogo Sun Hotel

Two suspects aged 35  and 43 year old are appearing before the Hillbrow Magistrates Court on corruption and extortion charges on today.

It is reported that the suspects allegedly solicited a R67 000 gratification from the complainant to reduce Tsogo Sun Hotel’s property rate bill account from R323 000 to a lesser amount.

Further investigation revealed that the suspects, who introduced themselves as Ncube Incorporated Attorneys employees contracted by City of Johannesburg to collect debt owed by its customers, demanded a further more compensation in order to reduce the utility bill again to R12 000.

Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation in Germiston and Johannesburg conducted a sting operation at a restaurant in Parktown, Johannesburg on Thursday. The suspects were immediately arrested in possession of R10 000 in cash, duly charged for corruption and extortion.

Investigation continues on this matter.
