- A father and son have been living the high life in Australia after allegedly fleecing RAF victims of millions
- The pair are living in a Sydney suburb in high class houses worth millions of rands
- They have been living in Australia for the past two years without facing any charges despite international arrest warrants being issued
Ronald Bobroff, a wealthy lawyer, who allegedly stole millions of rands from Road Accident Fund victims are enjoying a life of luxury in Australia along with his son, Darren. International arrest warrants have been issued for the pair.
They live in a upper class suburb of Sydney called St Ives in high class homes, Darrens home is estimated to be worth R25-million alone.
Days before they were due to turn themselves over to authorities in South Africa the father and son escaped to Australia in March 2016.
Soon after they fled Interpol issued international warrants for their arrest called Red Notices. The victims who were due pay outs from the Road Accident Fund suffered life altering injuries in car accidents.
Bobroff fleeced them of millions by charging enormous contingency fees for his services. One victim, Yasmin Motara, who lost her job after her accident in 2009 signed an agreement with Bobroff that she would not press charges if he returned the part of her payout.
He had charged her R1.2-million instead of the R400 000 which he was entitled to. In the end she only managed to get R180 000 from Bobroff. She had initially been awarded R6.5-million from the RAF in 2015.
Bobroff pleads innocence and says that he never took a cent from a client that was not due to him and that he had never conned any of the RAF victims.
