Eskom considers legal action against Trillian liars

Eskom’s board met on Tuesday to review the progress of various investigations and disciplinary proceedings related to the Trillian payment scandal.

The board said that once its technical review had been completed legal action would be considered against those implicated in the Trillian payment scandal. Eskom admitted to giving false information in June in regards to payments of just over one and a half billion rand to Trillian.

According to eNCA.com the disciplinary proceedings of four senior executives at the power utility who have been accused of lying about payments made to the Gupta-linked Trillian are ongoing.

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has given Eskom’s board two days in which to respond to the latest scandal to hit the power utility and to provide her with an explanation of the entire matter. Eskom originally stated that consultancy firm Oliver Wyman had given it the all clear to make payments to Trillian, but it has since emerged that the firm had firm had in fact red flagged these payments as suspicious and advised Eskom to review the contract with Trillian.

Eskom’s suspended CFO Anoj Singh has categorically denied any wrong doing and said he had never authorised any payments for anything other than legitimate business dealings.

The Organisation for Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) announced via its twitter page that it had laid criminal charges of corruption and financial misconduct against Singh.

The Hawks have confirmed that this latest scandal will form part of its investigation into state capture.

Will the Hawks investigation uncover any other scandals at Eskom?
