The man was arrested at King Shaka International Airport in May after he was found with more than R7.9-million undeclared cash in his luggage while on his way to China via Dubai.

Husain Farouk Motala, (37), recently appeared again in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court on a charge of failing to declare funds when leaving the country, reports the South Coast Herald.

In May this year, he was arrested at King Shaka International Airport with more than R7.9-million in cash in his luggage while on his way to China via Dubai.

The case has been postponed to October 11.

Meanwhile, the state is to bring more charges against his brother, IFP MP Hassan Motala.

Allegedly the ‘frontman’ in the multi-million rand tender fraud, Motala learned about the added charges during a recent brief appearance in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court.

Motala and four co-accused stand accused of selling fake contracts to people, claiming that they were building low cost housing for the Department of Human Settlements. He was arrested in April this year.

The matter was postponed to September so further investigations could be conducted.
