DA insists it's done nothing wrong by leaking Mti report
The SIU says the confidentiality of information contained in its reports is protected by law.
CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) insists it has done nothing wrong by leaking the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) report implicating Bosasa and new Nelson Mandela Bay head of safety and security, Linda Mti.
The SIU says it's the president's prerogative to have released the document and not that of the DA.
The investigative body says the confidentiality of information contained in its reports is protected by law.
It says it's considering its legal options in the matter.
But DA leader in the Eastern Cape Athol Trollip says the report was already in the public domain.
"That report has been out and tabled in Parliament, I believe it is a public document and therefore we are not in contravention of leaking anything."
At the same time, the Hawks have denied claims by the DA that authorities have refused to take action against Mti.
The Hawks have confirmed there's an ongoing investigation into prison tenders awarded to Bosasa Operations.
