Three major news outlets in South Africa have reported on the decision of Andrew Feinstein, Paul Holden (both of Corruption Watch UK) and Hennie Van Vuuren to decline to cross-examine former Minister of Trade and Industry Alec Erwin. Feinstein, Holden and Van Vuuren instructed their advocates, Lawyers for Human Rights, to request the right to recall Erwin after the receipt of key documents from the Commission. Both Holden and Feinstein remain deeply frustrated at the veil of secrecy cast over key documents in what is meant to be a full and unfettered public Commission of Inquiry.
