According to reports, an African couple, Bekezela and Thulile Bhebhe, based in England, are facing jail time for committing insurance fraud.
According to the Daily Mail, 52-year-old husband Bekezela Bhebhe simulated his own death between August 1 and September 30, 2016. This was to ensure that his wife could get a life insurance premium of nearly 400,000 £.
Prosecutor Julian Pozimski revealed that if convicted Bekezela of Zimbabwean nationality could be sentenced to five years in prison. Thulile, a 49-year-old South African who admitted the crime at a hearing, would be sentenced after her husband’s trial.
The couple was released on bail unconditionally.
