gavel thumb100 TimesLIVE reports that a former Western Cape magistrate, who worked at Thembalethu court in George, faces fraud charges after he was bust for allegedly moonlighting in the local municipal court.  

According to the Hawks, the former magistrate allegedly committed the offence over a nine-month period seven years ago.  He allegedly misled the Department of Justice by reporting for duty on a daily basis, and then proceeded to the George municipality valuation court where he illegally performed other judicial duties that earned him an extra income without due authorisation.  The magistrate is set to appear in the George regional court on 14 September.
