Johannesburg - Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has dismissed Lynne Brown's application to cross-examine former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas at the state capture inquiry.
Zondo, who appeared frustrated with Brown's lawyer Simmy Lebala, ruled immediately after Lebala was done with arguments that he could not grant Brown's application as she had not provided her version of events.
"Your time is up. Ms Lynne Brown's application is dismissed. She has not put up her version and I am not at this stage prepared to grant her leave to cross-examine. She is free to renew the application if she meets the requirements," said Zondo
Brown had sought to question Jonas based on his testimony where he mentioned her name.
Jonas had told the inquiry that Ajay Gupta had mentioned that the family had worked with and protected a number of people in the government and mentioned Brown as one of those people.
