South African union files case against Samancor Chrome over alleged fraud

JOHANNESBURG, Oct 2 (Reuters) - South Africa’s Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) said it had filed a court case on Wednesday against manganese and chrome producer Samancor Chrome relating to alleged fraud.

“The company is stealing from the workers,” said AMCU President Joseph Mathunjwa on the sidelines of a mining conference in Johannesburg.

Human rights lawyer Richard Spoor, who is representing AMCU, said via Twitter the case related to fraud and profit shifting worth hundreds of millions of dollars. He said further detail would be provided later on Wednesday.

Samancor had no immediate comment.
