A Harare magistrate has issued a warrant of arrest for the daughter of the late businessman Victor Cohen who owned Waverly Blankets after she failed to appear in court.
Amanda Berkowitz nee Cohen is facing perjury allegations after she reportedly forged a signature on one of the Memorandum documents of the company Waverley Plastics which her father Cohen owned.
The complainant in this case is her nephew, Aron Vico, who is the managing director of Waverley Blankets, a subsidiary of Waverley Empire.
The two have been embroiled in a bitter fight over the late Cohen’s empire for years.
The matter is at the close of state case and Berkowitz – Cohen had applied for the discharge saying the state failed to prove a prima facie against her.
Berkowitz – Cohen was expected to have her application for discharge ruling before Magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwiriro.
