THE R3.6-million fraud case against controversial Port Elizabeth businessman Theunis Crous has been postponed.
Crous, 54, who now lives in Johannesburg, is accused of defrauding the SA Revenue Service (SARS) of about R3.6million by submitting false VAT refunds on behalf of his construction company, Ho Hup Corporation, between December 2009 and January 2011. The construction company has since been liquidated.
Crous stands accused alongside former Ho Hup chief financial officer Almero Pienaar.
