South Africa: DA Councillor back in court after being charged for money laundering

The money laundering fraud of Nora Grose and Rueben case has been moved to the 29th of September 2021.

In May, 64 year old Nora Grose, who is a Cape Town based ward Councillor and a member of the DA also known as the Democratic Alliance (A South African political opposition party) got charged for wrongful dealings with money and money laundering of R170,000.

The funds were taken out from the Temporary Employee Relief Scheme (TERS) by dealing secretly and unlawfully with Rueben Swartz who is a chairperson the South African Religious Civic Organisation (SARCO) according to the state. The state accused her for also taking money from the City of Cape Town for personal gain.

The 64 year old was given a bail of R10,000 by the Atlantis Magistrate court after she willingly handed herself in to the Atlantis South African Police Service (SAPS). “The humanitarian funds values at R170,000 meant for the distribution of food parcels in Atlantis were reportedly funneled to a church in Table View with links to some city officials,” said member of the SAPS Hawks, Zinzi Hani.
