Parliament, Wednesday, 18 May 2022 - The last two media releases of Parliament pertaining to the institution's handling of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture Report stated that the President will submit all outstanding reports, along with the implementation plan, on or before 31 August 2022.

This was erroneously based on the previous extension, which has now been cancelled by the most recent extension, whose High Court order of 28 April 2022 requires the Judicial Commission to complete its work by 15 June 2022.

In terms of the High Court Order of 23 February 2022, the President needs to submit his Report to Parliament four (4) months after the receipt of the complete Report from the Judicial Commission.

Since the Chairperson of the Commission's recent extension was granted until 15 June for submission of the final report, the President's submission is now due to Parliament four months after receipt on that date, not end of August as incorrectly communicated in the last two releases.

The Presidency has since clarified this in the letter, accompanied by these Court orders, to the Presiding Officers of Parliament.
