“It is alleged that from March 2018, Faasen started to manipulate the system by adding her own banking details to beneficiaries’ accounts during payment authorizations where she was employed at the Fleet Chain Company as the finance officer handling payments.

“The company was prejudiced an amount of more than R4 million and the inconsistencies were discovered in March 2021.  An internal investigation was conducted where a case was opened and assigned to the Hawks for further investigation.”

Faasen was released on R5000-00 bail and the case was postponed to March 14, 2023.
