NPA Press Release
The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) welcomes the decision by the National Director of Public Prosecution (NDPP), Adv. Shaun Abrahams, to review the National Prosecution Authorities’ (NPA) decision to charge Mr. Pravin Gordhan and his former executives at the South African Revenue Services (SARS). This matter has occupied the psyche of the public and international markets, and has caused unnecessary uncertainty and disruption.
We however maintain our faith in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and all its organs of the State. We similarly reiterate our previous statement that all accused persons are innocent until proven otherwise by a competent court in line with the prescripts of our Constitutional democracy.
