A SUSPECT GETS RELEASED 'WRONGFULLY'

The police in Modimolle have launched a manhunt for an escapee who was wrongfully released in Pretoria Correctional Services after he paid bail that was allegedly arranged through fraudulent means. This revelation is said by Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo.

A suspect in this matter is Jaco Opperman aged 33, who was arrested in Witbank, Mpumalanga in August 2017 by the Modimolle Detectives after defrauding several victims of their money. He was being sought by the police since May 2016. 

"It is understood the suspect was advertising Buffalos for sale and was subsequently paid thousands of rands  ( +-60 000) when the unsuspecting victims made deposits into his account. He then disappeared. Three cases of fraud were then opened against him and a search ensued," said Mojapelo.

Opperman appeared before Modimolle Magistrate's Court on the 20th of September 2017 and was remanded in custody. The suspect was thereafter taken to Pretoria for detention. 
 
"He somehow managed to pay bail to the amount of R500.00 which was never granted during his court appearance. The suspect was supposed to appear again in the same court on Monday 16th of this month 2017 but was nowhere to be found." He said further outlining that their premilinary investigations point to possible aiding and abetting.
 
"A case of escaping from lawful custody has been opened against the suspect. Police have also opened cases of defeating the ends of Justice and aiding and abetting against the magistrate and a police warrant officer. A warrant for the rearrest of Opperman has been issued." He said. 

The Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba condemned this incident. "We will not tolerate a situation where we commit the scarce resources available to investigate cases and trace perpetrators, only for the arrested suspects to be released under dubious circumstances," said General Ledwaba.

    A well written article, I simply passed this to a workfellow who was doing somewhat analysis on this.
    And he in fact purchased me dinner because I discovered it for him.
