Angelo Agrizzi, ex-Bosasa boss, won't let his arrest stop him from finishing what he started. He wants to continue testifying before the State Capture Inquiry. He is happy to go back to the commission for cross-examination.
Angelo Agrizzi's lawyer says he's determined to finish what he started. He wants to continue testifying before the Zondo Commission despite his earlier arrest.
Agrizzi, along with Bosasa chief financial officer, Andries van Tonder, ex-Bosasa senior staffer, Frans Vorster, current Bosasa employee, Carlos Bonifacio, and former correctional services top brass, Patrick Gillingham, and Linda Mti, were all implicated in corruption, money laundering and fraud at BOSASA.
Briefly.co.za reported that the Hawks swooped in to make the arrests in last week. Agrizzi's charges include contravening the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act and violation of the Public Finance Management Act.
According to a report by The Daily Sun, the charges stem from an old Special Investigating Unit report that was handed over to the NPA in 2009.
Daniel Witz, Agrizzi's lawyer, said the former Bosasa boss wants to continue his testimony.
He [Agrizzi] is happy to go back to the commission and open himself up for cross-examination and for further testimony, however, he just wants a short period of time to confirm his right in terms of the Constitution, that he has in terms of the criminal trial against him, a fair trial in terms of the Constitution.
There is no intention of not going back.
