Man jailed for practising as a biokineticist without qualifications

One year in prison is the result of an unqualified exercise for a former biokinetic in the Northwest.

Hawks spokesman Col Katlego Mogale said Johannes Christiaan van Belkum, 53, was convicted by the Klerksdorp District Court on Wednesday to 12 months imprisonment for fraud and health professions law violation.

Van Belkum was an unskilled biokinetic practitioner in Klerksdorp and was not registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, Mogale said.

He was arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Economic Crime Investigation Team in March.
