Rustenburg - Former North West finance member of the executive council (MEC) Wendy Nelson, who is facing charges of fraud has approached the Integrity Commission of the African National Congress, the Interim Provincial Working Committee (IPWC) in the province said on Tuesday.
"The Interim Provincial Working Committee welcomes the decision taken by Cde Wendy Nelson to approach the Integrity Commission with the aim of taking the movement into confidence on her criminal charges," provincial spokesperson Kenny Morolong said.
He explained that the 54th national conference resolution demanded that every member accused of, or reported to be involved in, corrupt practices should account to the Integrity Commission immediately or face disciplinary processes.
"Cde Wendy has notified the Interim Provincial leadership that consistent with the latter resolution, she has accordingly approached the Integrity Commission," he said.
"The IPWC urges structures of the ANC, members and supporters to allow the movement to appropriately ventilate this matter. We reiterate our confidence in the ability of the criminal justice system to expeditiously dispense justice on this matter, without fear or favour."
