Scopa wants Steinhoff execs to appear before Parliament in the new year

The Chairperson for the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, Themba Godi, says the committee will be calling Steinhoff executives to appear before the committee when Parliament resumes in the new year.

The Public Investment Corporation (PIC) and the South African Revenue Service (Sars) will also be called to answer questions in the Steinhoff saga.

Our take is that Parliament would not be a spectator in a matter of huge proportion for our country. Secondly, we have public funds invested in Steinhoff through the PIC and Unemployment Insurance Fund.

Godi says it is only correct for Parliament to try to understand what happened and remedy the situation.

If Steinhoff executive refuse to appear before the committee, Godi says they will be subpoenad through Parliament's lawyers.

We believe that the Steinhoff executive would actually see this as being in their best interest to come before Parliament and the nation to explain themselves and assure the public that they are not some cowboy capitalists who want to operate outside the law.
