Opposition backs RTI test fighter

2014-11-12 00:00

OPPOSITION political parties have offered to support crusader Jane Harley’s fight for justice for the RTI recruits who died in a botched fitness test in 2012.

The Witness reported that Harley had applied for information on the matter using the Promotion of Access to Information Act. She was also probing the effectiveness of the Commission of Inquiry into the deaths. Harley wanted to know why those fingered in a summary of the report on the deaths had not been called to account.

The DA and IFP said they would forward questions to Premier Senzo Mchunu on the matter, the former to ask for an update regarding disciplinary procedures against those named in the report as responsible for the botched games.

The IFP would ask the premier to release the entire report on the commission and query the compensation for the victims’ families.
