Pretoria - The Seriti Commission of Inquiry into the 1999 arms deal was adjourned on Friday.

The commission would resume on Tuesday next week, to allow for the declassification of some documents, spokesman William Baloyi said in a statement.

This followed a postponement on Tuesday for further consultations between evidence leaders and witnesses from the trade and industry department.

The commission is investigating allegations of corruption in the controversial multi-billion-rand arms deal.
