The recommendation for criminal charges is particularly applicable to Mr Anoj Singh and Mr Koko, who by false pretences led Eskom, through the officials who processed the R659 million payment, to believe that the R659 million payment was in the nature of pre-payment for coal, as was the R1.68 billion pre-payment, later converted into a guarantee, when in truth and fact they knew that the prepayment and the guarantee were needed to enable the Guptas to complete and save the sale of share transaction.
Unisa is organising a conference on trans-border commercial law. The workshop deals with commercial law implications of cross-border trade – so anyone encountering a measure of international dimensions would benefit. The organisers state that at least three papers deal with human rights and intellectual property protection, while other papers may touch on constitutional issues.
The programme may be viewed on their web site www.unisa.ac.za/transborderworkshop.BACK TO TOP
