We welcome the adoption of a resolution [see here] resolving to summons Marks Jooste to give evidence on the scandal surrounding “accounting irregularities” at Steinhoff International Holdings N.V.

We may now finally get to hear evidence about the “big mistakes” Markus Jooste made which resulted in what may be one of the biggest corporate scandals in the history of South Africa.

We expect the hearing, which will include the Standing Committee on Finance, Standing Committee on Public Accounts, Portfolio Committee on Trade and Industry and Portfolio Committee on Public Administration, to be scheduled to take place on or about Wednesday 01 August 2018 in Parliament.
