Plea Bargain Agreement Between Npa And Billy Rautenbach's Company, S.a. Botswana Hauliers Finalised

Following extensive discussions and negotiations between the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), S.A. Botswana Hauliers (Pty) Limited (S.A. Botswana Hauliers) and its company representative and director, Mr. Muller Conrad Rautenbach (Billy Rautenbach), a plea bargain agreement was reached on Friday.

Billy Rautenbach - a Zimbabwe citizen and resident - arrived at Lanseria Airport on Friday morning from Zimbabwe and appeared in court in Pretoria on behalf of S.A. Botswana Hauliers relating to 326 counts of tax charges brought against the company.

S.A. Botswana Hauliers pleaded guilty, was convicted accordingly and as part of the sentence imposed by the court, following the conclusion of the Plea Bargain Agreement in terms of Section 105 (1) (a) of the Criminal Procedure Act - which was authorised by the National Director of Public Prosecutions ? the company was ordered to pay amounts aggregating R40 million to certain departments of state.

The sum of R40 million constituted amounts payable directly to the state, to the South African Revenue Services and an amount payable directly to the Criminal Asset Recovery Account of the NPA.

It is believed that following careful analysis and consideration it was concluded that the alleged offences, which occurred more than 10 years ago, related directly to S.A. Botswana Hauliers and not to Rautenbach personally.

The NPA has withdrawn all criminal charges against Billy Rautenbach and accordingly he is at liberty to depart from and enter the Republic of South Africa subject to compliance with normal immigration and customs formalities. As such, all restrictions to operate within South Africa have been lifted.

Concludes Rautenbach, ?I am pleased that the matter has been settled and that all personal charges against me have been withdrawn. Despite not having been able to operate within the perimeters of the country, it has always been my goal to return to South Africa to pursue potential business opportunities once my name had been cleared.?
