An East London company manager has been arrested for alleged theft amounting to R4 million, police said on Monday

Hawks spokesperson Captain Anelisa Feni said that Anastasia Mariana Parkin, 51, was arrested on Friday by the Serious Commercial Crime Investigation unit of the Hawks.

“She was arrested in East London and appeared before the East London magistrate’s court on the same day.”

Feni said that between 2010 and 2019 Parkin was employed as a finance manager at an international healthcare training organisation.

“It is alleged that, during her tenure within the organisation, she misappropriated R4 million. Parkin allegedly accessed the organisation’s bank account and made irregular payments by means of cheques and electronic fund transfers into her own bank account.”
