SAA Pilots Association chair calls out Hawks' investigation against him
Captain John Harty says it seems odd that this investigation is still underway.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Airways (SAA) Pilots Association chairman Captain John Harty says it appears the Hawks are still investigating a claim of sabotage against him even though SAA has found there was no threat to any of its planes.
Last year, he was interviewed by the Hawks, who claimed that he was being accused of trying to sabotage a plane about to be flown by a black pilot.
The accusation was made after Harty and the Pilots Association asked Parliament to replace SAA chair Dudu Myeni and the rest of the company's board with a new board.
Myeni is also the chair of the Jacob Zuma Foundation.
Harty says it seems odd that this investigation is still underway.
"If the Hawks had credible information then they need to prevent it from getting to court. If they received a bomb scare through the mail or telephone, they would that up religiously."
