Fugitive Moosagie was married to co-accused

PORT Elizabeth's missing millionaire and convict Amier Moosagie married his co-accused Desiree Jenkins in secret eight years ago, the Port Elizabeth High Court heard yesterday.

Moosagie and Jenkins were married under Muslim laws by an Imam. At the time, he was already married to two other women.

Moosagie has disappeared and is believed to be on the run after being convicted in the Port Elizabeth High Court of tax fraud, forgery, corruption, money laundering and racketeering totalling R3-million.

For years he lived a life of luxury – overseas trips, a beautiful glass mansion, top-of-the-range luxury cars and designer clothes.

But the bubble has burst for the powerful Moosagie family of Malabar.

Yesterday Jenkins, 55, bowed her head and listened intently to court proceedings. She has been convicted on the same charges levelled against Moosagie.

Sentence is due to be passed next Thursday.
