Question posted in the Criminal Law
category relating to Gauteng
Question value: R 0.00
Please may I ask for your assistance or advise on the following matter
I was dismissed for misconduct on the 8th of October 2019. Four charges/ evidence were brought against me which I did plead not guilty to
Yesterday (more than 4 months later) I received a letter from an attorney appointed by my ex employer, stating that they have done further investigation and have found further evidence and are now threatening to take me to court for fraud charges
My question to you would be the following: Are they allowed to do this? May they now try and submit additional evidence or can they only use the evidence submitted in the disciplinary proceedings?
They also were given the opportunity to deduct any moneys owed to them from my Alexander Forbes pension fund but indicated on the section 5 payout form that no monies should be deducted or paid/awarded to them
I appreciate your time and assistance in this matter
