Werksmans questions Transnet’s statement about 1 064 locomotive procurement report

Law firm Werksmans Attorneys on Friday said it was surprised at State-owned Transnet board’s attempt to absolve anyone of wrongdoing when its report into alleged fraud related to the procurement of 1 064 locomotives, had concluded that, not only should Transnet institute appropriate disciplinary action against those individuals identified in the report, but also that law enforcement agencies should be brought in to investigate the matters identified in the report. This follows after Transnet on Thursday said it had resolved that the report compiled by Werksmans, which had been tasked by the Transnet board to investigate the alleged fraud, was incomplete and inconclusive, based on the terms of reference provided to it.
