Johannesburg - The Seriti Commission of Inquiry into the 1999 arms deal was adjourned on Friday, a spokesperson said.

The commission would resume on Monday when Admiral Jonathan Kamerman would start his testimony, spokesperson William Baloyi said.

Former secretary for defence Pierre Steyn completed his testimony on Friday.

Other witnesses expected to testify in June included former president Thabo Mbeki, former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils, former defence minister and now leader of the Congress of the People Mosiuoa Lekota, and former planning minister Trevor Manuel, Baloyi said.

The commission, sitting in Pretoria and headed by Judge Willie Seriti, is investigating allegations of corruption in the multi-billion rand arms deal.
