Pretoria - The Seriti Commission of Inquiry into the arms deal has been postponed to Monday.
“(This came) after a request from legal representatives of some of the witnesses, namely Paul Holden, Andrew Feinstein and Hennie van Vuuren, to prepare to cross-examine witnesses from Armscor,” spokesman William Baloyi said on Thursday.
On Monday, the Right2Know (R2K) campaign called for a fully transparent process at the commission to expose alleged corruption and abuses of power linked to the arms deal.
R2K said it was concerned by reports of attempts by the Seriti Commission to limit the public's right to know.
It cited an apparent secrecy surrounding the list of Armscor witnesses and the limited access to witness statements.
R2K also noted that the limited cross-examination of witnesses by evidence leaders risked the commission being seeing as a one-sided process.
The commission, chaired by Judge Willie Seriti, is investigating allegations of corruption in South Africa's multi-billion rand arms deal.
