ANC looking forward to release of state capture report
The ruling party says it respects the right of all affected parties to seek the necessary legal recourse.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) says while it looks forward to the release of the Public Protector's state capture report, it also respects the right of all affected parties to seek the necessary legal recourse.
Earlier this week, the Presidency served Public Protector Thuli Madonsela with notice to interdict the release of the report, after President Jacob Zuma requested assurances that the publication would be halted.
The matter will be heard on 1 November.
The ANC says while the report will assist its fight against alleged state capture, it also recognises the right to legal recourse for those who feel aggrieved.
The party's Khusela Sangoni says, "The ruling party is indeed looking forward to the imminent release of the state capture report by the Public Protector.
"We also affirm the right of all individuals, who are implicated in the investigation, to legal recourse, including seeking interdicts where they feel aggrieved."
