Mark Hess - a former employee of Athlone Law firm H Mohamed and Co - blows the whistle on a long-standing scheme to rip-off illiterate and helpless victims of road accidents. Once Hess got wind of the scheme he quietly gathered evidence. Then he approached noseweek because of an article we had previously done on a single instance of road accident fund shenanigans by the law firm. noseweek in turn approached the Cape High Court for an Anton Piller order that would allow seizure of the documents from Mohamed's premises. Those documents are today the basis of a class action suit to reclaim the stolen money for its intended recipients. Read about the courageous actions of Hess, and of the attorneys, advocates and judges that led to the dramatic seizure.
