Arms Deal Inquiry: We’re following procedure
The commission is accused of purposefully not renewing the contracts of eight lawyers.
JOHANNESBURG - The Arms Procurement Commission says it is correct administrative procedure for employees whose contracts have come to an end to be informed.
The commission has denied reports that the contracts of eight lawyers will not be renewed because they did not push for a second agenda.
Commission spokesperson William Baloyi says their contractual relationship with the commission has come to an end.
"It's normal administrative procedure that when somebody's contract is about to come to an end you notify that person. It's not only the lawyers but also involves the administrative staff whose contracts are coming to an end."
President Jacob Zuma appointed the commission in 2011 to investigate alleged corruption in the 1999 multi-billion rand arms deal.
