The Congress of South African Trade
Union has welcomed the decision by the National Assembly to impose the
strongest action of Former Communications Minister Dina Pule.
Cosatu Spokesperson Patrick Craven
said as the 2014 election approaches it is essential that the government and
society as a whole treats corruption and the theft of public money as an
extremely serious crime against society.
Craven said they hope that the
Parliament will also follow up on the recommendations of the Ethics Committee so
that whole matter could be referred to the Police and the NPA.
“Clearly there could be criminal
investigation arising from the misuse of the Public money and what is alleged
to be pugery by the Minister and some of the officials.
“We also welcome the new Minister’s
intentions to take action against those officials as well, to see if there is a
case to answer,” Craven added.
