Former Steinhoff Chief Executive Office Markus Jooste has, yet again, refused to appear before South African lawmakers.

Lawmakers have now decided to subpoena Jooste.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Yunus Carrim, Chairperson at the Standing Committee on Finance.

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

Jooste’s lawyer argues he has the right to a fair defence in a court of law…

Yunus Carrim

We’re not supplanting the role of the Hawks… It’s quite possible to appear in front of our committee… without incriminating yourself…

Yunus Carrim

He can come to Parliament; he can say ‘this question is not fair to me’…

Yunus Carrim

The German and Dutch Parliaments are not looking into this matter. Other statutory bodies are… There’s been cooperation between the JSE and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange…
