It's the most charges against a company ever. Bruce Whitfield interviews the Competition Commissioner and Stuttaford's Director.

Furniture removal company Stuttaford Van Lines has been charged with 649 counts of collusive tendering in relation to government tenders issued for furniture transportation.

This is the largest number of charges against a single company in the history of the Competition Commission.

The Competition Commission wants the Competition Tribunal to fine the company 10% of its annual turnover on each of the 649 charges.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Competition Commission Commissioner Thembinkosi Bonakele.

Whitfield also spoke to Stuttaford Van Lines Director Mel Potgieter.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

This has come as a great shock to us.

Mel Potgieter, Stuttaford Van Lines

In the last six years, I’d be hard-pressed to find one incident in this company!

Mel Potgieter, Stuttaford Van Lines

We have systems and procedures that prevent that sort of thing.
