Fica Bill goes back to President to sign, again

Parliament has adopted minor changes on the Financial Intelligence Centre Amendment (Fica) Bill to address President Jacob Zuma's concerns that it may be unconstitutional.

Yesterday opposition parties urged the President to sign the bill into law without any delay.

Parties also used the opportunity to expose that Progressive Professionals Forum leader who has led the attack on Finance Minister. It is alleged that Mzwanele Manyi, has received funds from Eskom and Transnet for his organisation.

Zuma sent the bill back to the National Assembly raising concerns about the constitutionality of provisions relating to warrantless searches in the Bill.
