Two businessmen in court for N$600k fraud

Eileen van der Schyff

Two Walvis Bay businessmen made a first appearance in the Walvis Bay magistrate’s court yesterday, for the alleged embezzlement of N$600 000 from a Zambian businessman.

The duo face charges of fraud and theft under false pretense.
Dorian Luige Victor and Andrew Nicolas van Wyk were each released on N$50 000 bail and will return to court on 30 April.
The Zambian man reported them to the authorities, after he deposited the money into a bank account under the name of Inter Cargo Ship-ping. The payment was made for the transport of frozen chicken to Zambia.
The two accused withdrew the money and the transport service was never delivered, resulting in the Zambian businessman approaching the authorities on suspicions he has been defrauded.
