JOHANNESBURG - Former Western Cape police commissioner Arno Lamoer, three brigadiers and a businessman Salim Dawjee are expected to appear in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday to face 109 charges of corruption, racketeering and money laundering involving R1.6 million.

In April 2015, Lamoer, the three other police officials and two local businessmen handed themselves over to police.

According to the indictment, Lamoer and police brigadiers Darius van der Ross, Logambal "Sharon" Govender and her husband, Kolindren Govender, allegedly received bribes from Cape Town businessman Salim Dawjee and his son in exchange for special treatment.
