Cosatu lays criminal charges against ‘corrupt’ construction firms

2013-11-14 17:01

Cosatu has opened a criminal case against “corrupt” construction companies operating in South Africa.

“They have confessed that they are guilty of corruption and asked to be fined,” Cosatu Gauteng secretary Dumisani Dakile told members outside the Johannesburg Central Police Station.

This was the final leg of Cosatu’s day-long march against e-tolling and labour brokers.

Dakile handed the statement to station commander Brigadier Ronnie Rajim, who confirmed that a docket had been opened.

The case reportedly relates to collusion around the construction of road infrastructure and World Cup stadiums, among others.

Dakile said Cosatu would also ask the Auditor-General to look into what happened to funds from the fuel levy and vehicle licences.

The Hawks’ Gauteng head, Shadrack Sibiya, said he would take the document to the relevant authorities and respond to the trade union federation within three days, as Cosatu had requested.
