Majola DC hearing stalls

2012-06-27 14:06

Johannesburg - The disciplinary hearing of Cricket SA's suspended CEO, Gerald Majola, has yet to get underway.

Majola's lawyer, Pumezo David, said on Wednesday he still had no idea when the hearing would begin but some progress had been made in the preliminary steps.

"There was an advisory award from [the independent chairman] John Myburgh on how he thinks the matter should be dealt with, so we are going to meet to discuss it," said David, a director at Knowles Husain Lindsay Inc Attorneys.

"The pre-hearing conference took place three weeks ago and now we will discuss the recommendations made by Myburgh in order to proceed."

David said their request to have the disciplinary hearing held in public, following the format of the Nicholson Inquiry, had been turned down as CSA was against the idea.

"The response from CSA was a 'no'," he said.

"They didn't want it to be held in public, apart from the usual methods of keeping the media updated on the process."

Majola was suspended in March after R4.7 million in bonuses was paid to CSA staff without clearance from the board or the remuneration committee.

    Bet you CSA will stall this hearing as long as possible. They most probably are to scared to fire this cheat Majola because he will turn to his ANC cadres for help or otherwise there are to many cheats in CSA and by getting rid of them there would be no more board

    Consider this - they have NOTHING to charge him with! Why deny Majola's request for a public hearing? Mark my words - he is innocent in the sense that the transgressions were procedural AND all his actions were either ratified by the Board or money was repaid. He is not your run-of-the-mill skelm politician. 7 previous Travelgate offenders who were found guilty are now senior ANC members (even Ministers) - where's Fikile's "outcry" over corrupt party members? But he's shouting at CSA - one of the few successful sporting bodies which has made millions over the years and keep on attracting overseas tournaments...
