Johannesburg - The Seriti Commission of Inquiry into the 1999 arms deal has been adjourned for the week and will resume on September 30, commission spokesman William Baloyi said on Monday.
“The commission will use the week to conduct further investigations and consultations,” Baloyi said in a statement.
Other reasons were that the City of Tshwane would utilise the venue the commission has been held at, for council activities.
Last week, the commission was postponed because chairman Judge Willie Seriti was ill.
President Jacob Zuma appointed the commission in 2011 to investigate alleged corruption in the multi-billion-rand arms deal.
The government acquired, among other things, 26 Gripen fighter aircraft and 24 Hawk lead-in fighter trainer aircraft for the South African Air Force as part of the arms deal.
The Defence and Military Veterans' Department, arms procurement parastatal Armscor, and the national Treasury are expected to make presentations to the commission on the rationale behind the arms acquisitions. - Sapa
