Perjury charges hang over Vodacom exec

0 comments

Vodacom is tight-lipped this morning regarding possible perjury charges being levied by the Competition Commission against a former executive.

The Commission has laid a complaint against the unnamed executive, claiming that she knowingly supplied false information during hearings about the acquisition of Global Telematics and Glocell.
During those hearings, Vodacom was asked to present certain documents, which it failed to do, insinuating that they did not exist.
When the Commission ordered them to be produced, they were submitted.
It is thought the documents were initially not produced because they may point to reasons for the acquisition other than those stated in the official submissions.
The Competition Commission has elected to target the executive who signed the documents as opposed to the company as a whole.
