We have noted your point, hon Steenhuisen, and I'm quite sure that the Deputy President's Office has also taken to heart what you are saying.
Measures to prevent illicit financial flows
3. Mr N F Shivambu (EFF) asked the Deputy President:
With reference to his reply in the National Council of Provinces to question 2 on 27 August 2014, that the Government will not institute any commission of enquiry into the matter of transfer of capital, as state institutions are capable to deal with illicit financial flows and, in light of new revelations by the Global Financial Integrity report and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa/African Union commission, chaired by former president Thabo Mbeki, what measures, legislative or otherwise, are being taken by the Government to prevent the country from losing billions of rands every year through illicit financial flows?
