Judge finds Cape Town attorney and property developer, Richard Goudvis, to be a poor witness, evasive and a liar.
In June 2009 Noseweek reported on a meeting of panicked Johannesburg investors in Barry Tannenbaum’s billion rand pyramid scheme, which was held at the offices of attorneys Routledge Modise in Sandton days after they learned, via the grapevine, that the pyramid had collapsed.
Noseweek noted that a whole clutch of Cape investors, who between them had invested over R100m, were represented at the meeting by attorneys Craig Delport (see past noses about him) – and Richard Goudvis. Delport and Goudvis (full names Richard Anthony Leigh) were classmates at UCT law school.
It is Goudvis who has most recently again attracted Noseweek’s attention.
