In another court case, a Harare businessman, Ofer Sivan is back in the dock on allegations of fraud involving 200 thousand United States dollars.
The court heard that sometime in 2020, Sivan defrauded his co-director at their company, Adlecraft Investment Pvt Ltd after he forged a signature to open two company bank accounts as the sole signatory.
The state opposed bail on the basis that he is a flight risk and that he could tamper with evidence.
