SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux deems R37m civil claim laid against him ” strange.”

News24 reported that the institutions’ spokesperson Martin Viljoen confirmed with them that this was owing to administrative reasons and time constraints, by agreement between the parties.

The university is said to be claiming damages from Roux, He has ever since questioned these claims on grounds that the Univerisity is unable to produce the laws, statutes, regulations, policies, and principles that applied during his employment and that it is “strange” that he’s facing claims of breach of employment contract.

News 24 also included in its report that, an audit from KPMG, “attached to a notice by the university lodged at the high court in October 2017, Roux “misrepresented the university’s funds (including by, without evidence of authorisation, reallocating reserves of the university for expenditure); entered into unauthorised agreements on behalf of the university; did not act in the best interests of the university; and potentially benefitted personally from university funds.”

In March De Beer wasΒ served with a noticeΒ to appear in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crimes Court later that month to face multiple fraud charges as well as a charge of money laundering, News 24 reported.
