MPUMALANGA – A 40-year-old Mkhuhlu Court Interpreter has been arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team on Friday in Mpumalanga for alleged Corruption.

It is alleged that between January and March 2021 the suspect approached an accused who was released on bail for two domestic violence-related cases where he had allegedly violated a protection order. The official then demanded money claiming that he will ensure that the cases were withdrawn. The victim paid the money as demanded but the case was not withdrawn.

It is further alleged that the interpreter continued soliciting money from the victim on different occasions stating that he needed to pay for the Prosecutor’s personal needs in order for the case docket to be destroyed permanently. The victim kept on acceding to the demands but to his surprise, the case kept being postponed.
