Lungani Zungu | Independent Online | 04 February 2018 | THE allegations of state capture and economic crimes committed in the country before and after democracy in 1994 are coming under scrutiny at the high-powered People’s Tribunal on Economic Crime which got under way at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg yesterday.
The tribunal aims to “join the dots” in the country’s story of state capture and plunder.
Organised by Open Secrets, Corruption Watch, Right2Know and the Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI), the tribunal comprises five days of public hearings into corruption and economic crimes over the past 40 years.
Among the adjudicators of the tribunal are former justice of the Constitutional Court Zak Yacoob, former United Nations High Commissioner Navi Pillay, Dinga Sikwebu, Mandisa Dyantyi, Yasmin Sooka and Allyson Maynard Gibson.
