Roux trial to get under way in May

The financial mismanagement trial against SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux has been given a court date of 13 May.

Stellenbosch University has claimed that Roux allegedly benefited from misappropriating funds during his time in the management of the university’s rugby club.

A report by audit firm KPMG states that Roux could have benefited from university funds through the payments of irregular bonuses.

The report says that payments and bonuses were approved to a club rugby coach who was then asked by Roux to deposit an amount of R55,250 into his account.

Roux is also alleged to have used software that covered his audit trail and concealed the movement of funds between accounts.
