Gregory Lawrence, a BOSASA-linked employee, alleged today that he used to deliver bribe money to BOSASA. The commission of inquiry was shown videos of what is alleged to be Lawrence delivering cash at the infamous company.
Today saw Gregory Lawrence explaining how he used to deliver cash to BOSASA when he worked for Equaltrade4, a catering company, to the Zondo Commission.
During his testimony, he had shown the inquiry a video clip, which he claims is evidence that he used to deliver bribe money to the infamous company.
Lawrence had explained how BOSASA would disguise the transaction by pretending to order catering equipment and alcohol and having the money delivered instead.
According to 702 Live, BOSASA would EFT the funds to Equaltrade 4, who in turn would pack it in boxes and deliver it.
Clement Manyathela, a reporter for EWN, spoke about the video contained in Lawrence's testimony saying that:
"Lawrence told the commission that he took the videos because he knew that somehow he could one day have a fallout with Bosasa and they could somehow pin this on him. In the video, you could hear them saying we have just delivered R900 000 in cash. He took those videos so that he can protect himself one day."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Lawrence had viewed the transaction as a way to save money, 'because it was expensive to take the money to the bank'.
