Couple in court on wine fraud charges

The law has caught up with a Cape Town couple wanted for allegedly defrauding a top wine producer of millions of rands.

Police seized the passports of former DGB executive Kobus Terblanche and his wife, Corné, when they returned from a trip to Europe.

The Terblanches are accused of setting up ghost companies to export wine at inflated prices to clients they allegedly lured from DGB.

The couple left South Africa despite a warrant for their arrest.

They will apply for bail in the Wellington Magistrate’s Court this morning.
