Majola DC hearing stalls

2012-06-27 13:43

The disciplinary hearing of suspended Cricket SA (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola, has yet to get under way.

Majola’s lawyer Pumezo David said today he still had no idea when the hearing would begin, but that some progress had been made in the preliminary steps.

“There was an advisory award from [the independent chairman] John Myburgh on how he thinks the matter should be dealt with, so we are going to meet to discuss it,” said David, who is a director at Knowles Husain Lindsay Inc Attorneys.

“The pre-hearing conference took place three weeks ago and now we will discuss the recommendations made by Myburgh in order to proceed.”

David said a request to have the disciplinary hearing held in public, following the format of the Nicholson Inquiry, had been turned down as CSA was against the idea.

“The response from CSA was a ‘no’,” he said.

“They didn’t want it to be held in public, apart from the usual methods of keeping the media updated on the process.”

Majola was suspended in March after R4.7 million in bonuses was paid to CSA staff without clearance from the board or the remuneration committee.
