Marc Davies | Huffington Post ZA | 08 February 2018 | The People’s Tribunal on Economic Crime concluded on Wednesday with preliminary findings from the panel.
The abysmal failure to properly investigate, and prosecute, apartheid-era crimes set the scene for the “corrupt” R30-billion (in 1999 value) arms deal to unfold, the panel at the corruption Tribunal said on Wednesday.
The Tribunal heard evidence of economic crimes, corruption and capture in South Africa over the past 40 years that organisers said was an exercise in “truth-telling” and an attempt to “connect the dots”.
Yacoob on Wednesday said the panel believed if apartheid-era economic crimes and sanctions-busters had been properly prosecuted, it would have been less likely that economic crimes relating to the post-apartheid arms deal would have taken place.
