THE ‘BUTTERFLY’ HITS BACK AT STATE

 

*Emails are fabricated – Claim
*SA bank accounts and companies non-existent- defence – claim

The case in which former Directorate of Intelligence Services (DIS) agent, Welheminah Mphoeng Maswabi is charged with financing terrorism has taken another twist, court records reveal. New information provided by her defence attorneys accuses the State of fabricating evidence before the courts.

Maswabi’s attorney Uyapo Ndadi has engaged a South Africa forensic company, Basileus Consilium Professional Services (BCPS) to challenge the terrorism charges. The company was engaged to provide an opinion on the authenticity of the emails provided by the State, which are said to have been exchanged by Maswabi and former spy chief Issac Kgosi. They were also tasked to establish whether Royal Bank of Scotland, Fire Flies Inc and Blue Flies Inc which were allegedly used by Maswabi to move money around are indeed registered in South Africa.

Senior Digital Forensic Analyst at BCPS Johan Minnaar’s findings allege that the emails alleged to be between Maswabi and Kgosi appear to be fabricated and fraudulent.

“ It is our view that the differences between the messages attached to the application and our test messages are evident and self-explanatory. On face value, the document (the High Court application annexures) appear to be fraudulent as they could very easily have been produced by a word processor such as Microsoft Word,” said Minnaar in the latest affidavits submitted to the High Court before stating that the said companies are not registered in South Africa with Companies and the Intellectual Property Commission South Africa.
