Arms deal activist Terry Crawford-Browne read a letter to the Seriti Commission of Inquiry on Tuesday in which he lodged some complaints.

Commission chairman Willie Seriti told the commission he received the letter from Crawford-Browne on Monday. He asked Crawford-Browne to read it into the record.

Crawford-Browne said there were 23 points in the letter. He objected that Monday's pre-hearing conference was a closed session.

"[The minister] said the commission would be an open and transparent process," Crawford-Browne said.

However, evidence leader Moss Mphaga SC, said Crawford-Browne was in the pre-hearing conference.

The first witness was expected to testify in the commission on Tuesday.

Rear Admiral Alan Green was expected to shed light on the SA National Defence Force's mandate and its functions and policies which culminated in the decision to purchase arms.
