Johannesburg – A 43-year-old woman from Boksburg, arrested by the Hawks for allegedly defrauding a medical equipment company to the tune of over R460m, was seemingly living a life of luxury before she was nabbed.

The suspect was expected to appear at the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Friday, following her arrest on Wednesday by a team from the Germiston Hawks’ Commercial Crime Unit.

Her arrest followed a three-month-long investigation. It is alleged that she duplicated payments by transferring money into her late husband’s bank account while working as an accountant at the company she defrauded.
