WATCH: EFF counsel pushes for release of #StateCapture report today

14 October, 02:17 PM

Counsel for the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) argued for the immediate release of the interim report on state capture.

Its counsel argued the release of the report was in the public interest.

The arguments emerged during proceedings in the North Gauteng High Court on Friday morning.

Minister of Co-Operative Governance Des Van Rooyen filed an urgent application to have the report's release blocked.

The EFF's lawyer expressed concern that it was unclear what would happen to the draft report once Thuli Madonsela's term ended.

He said it was not clear what incoming Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane would be expected to do.

Van Rooyen's application was heard in the North Gauteng High Court on Friday morning. Judge Dawie Fourie did not rule, however. He set down the matter for 1 November.
