Yengeni to start jail term
By Nadia Samie
The Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein on Monday dismissed Former ANC chief whip Tony Yengeni’s application for leave to appeal against his four-year prison sentence, imposed in 2003 in relation to fraud.
Yengeni was ordered to report to Pollsmoor Prison within 72 hours to start serving his sentence.
Yengeni filed court papers in June this year to appeal against his sentence.
The Democratic Alliance has responded to the ruling by saying the public will never be satisfied that justice has been done until all of the senior ruling party officials who have been implicated in the Arms Deal are brought to justice. The opposition party has called for a judicial commission of enquiry to be appointed.
