The name of writer and former ANC MP Andrew Feinstein was erroneously included in the list of people implicated in the arms deal and has since been removed. The Mercury regrets the error.
Durban - Former presidential adviser and convicted fraudster, Schabir Shaik, has said the decision to have the Seriti Commission set aside was “interesting”.
Speaking to The Mercury following Judge President Dunstan Mlambo’s ruling, Shaik said the truth does eventually come out.
“The truth takes a long time to come out but it does come out eventually,” he said.
Shaik, along with his brother Chippy Shaik, former presidents Jacob Zuma and Thabo Mbeki, Fana Hlongwane and Tony Yengeni were implicated in the Arms Deal. Yengeni has since been convicted of defrauding Parliament after it emerged that he had benefited personally from securing bribes in the deal.
