The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) has alleged that Eskom consultants Trillian Capital Partners have been “dabbling” in derivatives and losing billions of rands in the process. “Trillian has been dabbling in derivatives with our public money, racking up losses of R27-billion,” Outa spokesperson Ted Blom told Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises on Wednesday.
