A Port Elizabeth businessman will be back in the Commercial Crimes court on Tuesday to be sentenced for fraud.
In April Stuart Mcleod was found guilty of arson, insurance fraud and defeating the ends of justice.
Magistrate Lionel Lindoor found Stuart Mcleod guilty of torching his rented business premises in Newton Park in 2015 so that he could institute a R6.1 million insurance claim.
The State found that he unlawfully and intentionally set fire to his embroidery and garment labelling workshop in the PE suburb of Newton Park.
Mcleod was also found guilty on an additional charge of defeating the ends of justice for making a false statement to the police about an apparent break-in and that the CCTV cameras were not working.
Sentencing has been set down for the 14th of May at 2 pm.
Mcleod is currently out on warning.
