The Department of Justice has suspended two senior officials in the Pretoria Master’s Office, pending investigations into their roles in the appointment of liquidators of corruption-accused group of companies African Global Operations, previously Bosasa.

The suspensions of chief director and former acting chief master Theresia Bezuidenhout and deputy master Christene Rossouw were affected earlier in September after both were provided with an opportunity to give reasons why they should not be suspended.
