Johannesburg - Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has appointed the people who will head an inquiry into firearms, his department said on Thursday.

The minister's spokesperson Zweli Mnisi said Soraya Hassim and Advocate Rams Ramashia were selected to head the investigation that would probe non-compliance of the Firearms Control Act.

Hassim currently practised administrative law that dealt with cases of compliance and regulatory matters, among other things.

She was involved in constitutional law, public interest law, commercial law and insolvency law.

Ramashia was a former director general of the labour department and former chairperson BP Southern Africa.

Mnisi said Hassim and Ramashia were expected to commence their duties soon.

"The minister has given them six weeks to complete this investigation.

"The investigation will result in a written report to the minister that incorporates findings as well as recommendations," he said.
