Malvern attorney to be investigated for man’s murder

Subashni Moodley

Well-known attorney, Subashni Moodley, was struck off the roll of attorneys at the Pietermaritzburg High Court last week, after she was charged with the alleged mismanagement of the Road Accident Fund payout of a client, who died under mysterious circumstances in Malvern and never enjoyed his payout of R560, 000.

According to private investigator, Seelan Pillay of Bopha Investigations, who was engaged by the family of Theodore Charles Minnie after he was found, burnt to death in a wendy house, said there were numerous discrepancies in the case and vows to prove that Minnie was murdered.

“I am pleased at this stage that two senior judges have found that Moodley is not fit to practice as an attorney. I want to place on record my thanks to my team of investigators and Mr Ganie from the KwaZulu-Natal Law Society. We have gone through the judgment and will be meeting with the branch commander of Malvern SAPS and the provincial commissioner to pursue a charge of murder. We have proven the motive and will not rest until justice is served,” he added.

Rebecca Gengan claimed, “My husband was involved in a horrific car accident in 1999, and his leg had to be amputated due to the severity of his injuries. After he had recovered, we decided to do a Road Accident Fund (RAF) claim. We engaged the services of Moodley, who said that she will let us know when the claim comes through, however, several months after the claim was supposed to be processed, she said that there was still no news of the cash payout. We then went to another lawyer, Arvin Singh, who, after being given the run-around by Moodley, discovered that she had collected the RAF payout and she did not tell us about it. She then told Singh that she had paid off Minnie’s debts on his instructions. He refuted her allegations that he had instructed her to do that. It was an ongoing battle thereafter and Moodley refused to give us the bill of cost.”

Gengan further told journalists, “On the day of his death, October 7, she produced an affidavit saying that he does not want anything to do with me and that he wants Moodley to have power of attorney to his assets and that she should be the beneficiary. We then hired a private investigator to find out how my husband died and to also get to the bottom of the affidavits produced by Moodley.”

Seelan Pillay, made the shocking revelation during his investigations. “Minnie was being housed at Moodley’s boyfriend’s brother’s house at the time of his death. We discovered that Subash was housing Minnie at a wendy house at the back of her boyfriend’s brothers house from the time he disappeared. Minnie burnt to death after the wendy house mysteriously caught alight. We are confident that we will be able to change the case of inquest to a charge of murder after our investigations are finalised,” said Pillay.

Gengan concluded, “We just want closure on my husband’s death for the sake of my daughter. She left school following his death as she had been severely traumatised and depressed and also due to me being unemployed and not being able to afford school fees. We want the perpetrators involved in my husband’s death to face the full wrath of the law as this whole ordeal had been premeditated and needs to be exposed for what it is; premeditated murder.”​
