JOHANNESBURG - Arms deal campaigners on Thursday said they were ready, willing and able to give any information they have about the deal to the commission.

On Thursday, the Arms Procurement Commission said it was ready to receive submissions from people with information about wrong-doing in the deal.

The commission also said it would treat the information confidentially.

In 2011, President Jacob Zuma announced the inquiry into the arms deal, which is made up of three judges.

The commission was formed to probe allegations of fraud and irregularities in the arms deal package, which was signed in 1999.

Andrew Feinstein, Gavin Woods and Patricia de Lille expressed their readiness to make their submissions.

Feinstein said it was vital for people with any information to come forward so the commission could get the full picture.

“Unless everything that is available is made available to the South African public, there will still be a great sense of dissatisfaction."

De Lille said she will not necessarily tell the commission who gave her the arms deal dossier.

“I don’t think the commission needs to worry where I got the dossier information from. The issue is the content of the dossier.”

The commission said it would first look at the evidence it received in private before holding public hearings in November.
