The case of fraud and corruption against former African National Congress (ANC) MP Vincent Smith has been postponed to December 3 by the Commercial Crimes court sitting in Palm Ridge Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.

It was his second appearance at the court. He was released on R30 000 bail over a week ago.
