NEW evidence is to be filed as part of a court case taking the arms deal commission of inquiry’s findings on review. It seeks to show the commission ignored critical evidence.It ignored the advice and documents provided by local and international investigators, and ultimately, through wilful ignorance or incompetence, did not do its job.Corruption Watch and Right2Know filed a supplementary affidavit yesterday based in part on a record of the commission’s work provided to them as part of their court case. The organisations said the commission’s own record showed up the holes in its investigation, which led to a “whitewash” of the multimillion rand arms deal scandal.Shortly after the commission’s findings were released, the organisations announced that they would take the commission’s findings on review. They said during its three-year-long investigation, the commission failed to look at “massive evidence” of corruption.Former president Jacob Zuma is currently fending off corruption charges relating to the arms deal. – NEWS24
