The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) celebrates yet another legal victory. OUTA has received formal communication from the attorney of former BnP Capital CEO, Daniel Mahlangu, that Mahlangu has agreed to comply with a subpoena that demands that he hand over all documentation relating to BnP Capital’s deal with SAA.
“Mahlangu’s continued defence and protection of Dudu Myeni is suspicious leading us to believe that documents withheld could contain damning evidence,” said Rudie Heyneke, OUTA’s Transport Portfolio Manager.
In 2016 OUTA began legal action to have former SAA board chairperson, Dudu Myeni declared a delinquent director. We believe she was in involved in the dubious dealings with BnP Capital that resulted in financial instability of the national carrier.
In OUTA’s pursuit of truth and evidence, the organisation issued a subpoena ordering Mahlangu to hand over documentation that will shed more light on the depth of Myeni’s involvement. However, Mahlangu refused and fought this with a court application to set aside the subpoena. The application was set on the roll this week. However, hours before the matter could be heard, Mahlangu’s attorneys withdrew the application and have agreed to comply with our subpoena.
“It is important for us to have all the facts available in our quest for truth in our case against Myeni. This is a huge step in the right direction,” said Stefanie Fick, OUTA’s Head of Legal.
OUTA is a proudly South African civil action organisation, that is purely crowd funded. Our work is supported by ordinary citizens who are passionate about holding government accountable and ensuring our taxes are used to the benefit of all South Africans.
