The People’s Tribunal on Economic Crime will deliver its final findings to the public at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg on 20 September 2018. This follows six months, in which implicated parties in business and government were allowed to respond to allegations of economic crimes, and in which legal arguments were prepared for deliberation by members of the Tribunal panel.
The initial hearings took place from 3 to 7 February 2018. Evidence of corruption and economic crimes relating to the South African arms trade over the past forty years – from the apartheid era to contemporary state capture – was heard. In addition, civil society groups made powerful submissions about the impact of corruption in our society. To learn more about these cases, read the Joining the Dots report put together by the Tribunal Organising Committee.
Evidence at the Tribunal was heard by members of the panel, made up of legal experts and activists. The panelists are Mandisa Dyantyi, Allyson Maynard Gibson, Navi Pillay, Dinga Sikwebu, and Zak Yacoob. After considering the critical and compelling evidence brought before them, the panel made interim findings and recommendations.
PARI is a partner of the the Tribunal and will live tweet from Constitution Hill on 20 September.
