WATCH: Zuma's six key points on the Arms Deal

2016-04-22 13:54

There was no evidence to support allegations of bribery, corruption and fraud in the 1999 multi-billion rand arms deal, President Jacob Zuma announced on Thursday.WATCH

Johannesburg – Arms deal critic Terry Crawford-Browne has filed an application at the Constitutional Court, asking it to set aside the Seriti Commission's report.  

In a statement released on Tuesday, Crawford-Browne said he had requested the court to set aside the commission’s report, and to "instruct the Minister of Finance to recover monies - now estimated at over R70bn - that were irrationally and fraudulently spent on the arms deal".

According to Crawford-Browne, despite public commitments to an open and transparent investigation, the commission "proved a repeat of the 2001 stunt by President Thabo Mbeki to cover up the arms deal scandal".

In April, Zuma announced that the arms deal commission of inquiry had found no evidence of wrongdoing in the deal.

The commission was appointed by Zuma in 2010 to investigate alleged corruption in the multi-billion-rand arms procurement deal.

The government acquired, among other hardware, 26 Gripen fighter aircraft and 24 Hawk lead-in fighter trainer aircraft for the air force, as well as frigates and submarines for the navy.
