Cape Town - Parliament will still pursue EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu when he returns to the national legislature to take up his seat.
This is after the committee failed to conclude the case against Shivambu before the end of the term ahead of the elections, for allegedly assaulting a journalist.
Former co-chairperson of the ethics committee Omie Singh said on Sunday the legacy report of the committee was clear to the new members.
He said they stated in the report that cases from the last Parliament would continue as long as those implicated were still MPs.
The case would only fall away when a charged person stopped being an MP because the committee had no jurisdiction outside Parliament.
