[LISTEN] Casac expresses skepticism over extension into State Capture Inquiry

The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) says the State Capture Commission should provide a detailed plan on how it will conclude the inquiry over the next two years.

State Capture Commission Chair, Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has obtained an interim court order, which extends the deadline to complete the inquiry within by 2020.

Casac's Executive Secretary Lawson Naidoo says there is no information on who will be appearing in the upcoming public hearings.

It needs to be motivated. There needs to be a clear plan to say what it is it that is going to be done in that period of time and why is it going to take so long.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Director, Council for the Advancement of the Constitution

I think the problem that people have is that from the date of the establishment of this commission of inquiry, today the 180 days expire and there is not much that we can show that has happened in those six months. I think there is a level of skepticism about it.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Director, Council for the Advancement of the Constitution
