The Democratic Alliance said, it will today write to the President to demand answers on when this unworkable legislation is coming back to be reworked by the police portfolio committee.

DA Shadow Minister of Police Dianne Kohler Barnard said, this has successfully destroyed any possible foreign investment in this massive industry, which employs hundreds of thousands of South Africans.

Barnard said the DA welcomes the statement this week by American Ambassador to South Africa, Patrick Gaspard that he has had assurances from the state that the controversial Private Security Industry Regulation Amendment Bill will be sent back to Parliament for reworking.

“This means the President has finally accepted that the provisions which limit foreign ownership of Private Security Companies under the World Trade Organisation General Agreement on Trade in Services would be reached by such legislation” Bernard added.
