Majola DC hearing stalls
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.
