Hain is pleased that the British government has agreed to suspend Bain and his company – SABC News

Anti-apartheid activist Lord Peter Hain says he is glad the British government has agreed to suspend Bain and the company of public contractors for three years for their role in facilitating the capture of the South African Revenue Service ( SARS).

This was done at the request of Hain, a former British MP.

The State Capture Commission report found Bain’s South African branch colluded with former President Jacob Zuma and former SARS boss Tom Moyane to capture the agency.

Hain says global companies like Bain must face the consequences of their actions.

He says, “I was convinced that companies like Bain and Co. and there are others like KPMG and Makenzie that were involved in the whole corrupt state capture under Zuma. I thought that they should also face consequences abroad and that they should receive the results of their illegal behavior in the case of Bain.

The Zondo commission said it sent them back for prosecution because of the way they dismembered SARS, but they continued to practice in London and Washington DC and elsewhere around the world as if nothing had happened. in South Africa. So that was my aim and I’m glad the UK government exceeded my request.
