CAPE TOWN: Former mayor Patricia de Lille laid charges of fraud and defamation against four senior DA members, including two MPs, at the Cape Town Central police station in Buitenkant Street on Thursday.

DA member Henk Hugo, DA KwaZulu-Natal deputy provincial chairperson Shehana Kajee, DA deputy chief whip Mike Waters and National Council of Provinces MP Bronwyn Engelbrecht face charges of sharing or distributing a fake Auditor-General report.

They had ignored a deadline given by De Lille in October to publicly apologise for what she said were defamatory statements.
