Cape Town - SAFA referee Clifford Malgas accused of match fixing was granted R5 000 bail by the Cape Town District Court on Monday.

He appeared before magistrate Alfreda Lewis, who transferred the matter to the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Bellville, where he is to make his first appearance on October 31.

He was banned from making any contact with listed State witnesses.

Malgas told the court he had appointed a privately funded attorney, who was not at the proceedings.

It later transpired that his lawyer had not left Johannesburg yet.

On the corruption charges, Malgas allegedly manipulated the outcome of a match during the 2011 second division play-offs in Cape Town.
