Andre von Broen (41), appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court on charges of fraud, theft and forgery last week.

According to court documents, between 30 September 2011 and 20 October 2011, he went to Standard Bank in Windhoek whilst in possession of a cheque worth N$14 852.25 cheque.

He promptly told Standard Bank that he was authorised to have the cheque on behalf of the National Disaster Emergency Fund when that was not true.

The court documents show that on 30 September, he stole the cheque from this Fund, which cheque had no. 010895 – 010900.

The cheque also had the forged signature of Francis Kooper inserted, which he then tried to present to Standard Bank and cash in. When Von Broen appeared before Magistrate Sarel Jacobs, his case was postponed to 7 and 8 November next year for plea and trial.
