The fraud, corruption, and money laundering case against Northern Cape ANC leader John Block and his co-accused is expected to continue in the Kimberley High Court on Thursday.

During the last appearance, the court head of how alleged payments by the Trifecta company to Northern Cape politicians generated a sense of obligation.

Prosecutor Peter Serunye submitted that it was a corrupt relationship of give and take, give and take.

Judge Mathebe Phatshoane heard arguments in an acquittal application in the trial of Northern Cape ANC heavyweights Block, Alvin Botes, Yolanda Botha and Trifecta director Christo Scholtz.

The State accuses Trifecta of entering into a number of lease agreements with three Northern Cape government departments in which rentals, or rental space, were grossly inflated.

The accused have all pleaded not guilty to the charges against them or their companies.
