The African National Congress (ANC) in the Northern Cape continues to support fraud convicted former ANC Chair John Block who is currently appealing his matter at the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein.

Block and businessman Christo Scholtz were found guilty on money laundering and fraud. They were sentenced to 15-years behind bars by the Kimberley High Court.

“We still support him, we actually said before he was charged, we believe in his innocence. We contacted him and have wished him all the best, his has got a right when a court finds him guilty to apply to the Higher Court so he submitted an appeal and the arguments at the SCA and we wish him all the best,” says Provincial ANC Chairperson, Zamani Saul.
