Finweek English Edition - - Main news stories -

WHAT HAP­PENED| THE PREF­ER­EN­TIAL TREAT­MENT given to for­mer ANC chief whip Tony Yen­geni and Shabir Shaik while serv­ing prison sen­tences has once again been crit­i­cised by sev­eral news­pa­pers. The pa­pers sup­port the or­der given by Cor­rec­tive Ser­vices Min­is­ter Ng­conde Bal­four that Shaik must re­turn to jail af­ter 80 days in a private hospi­tal. Yen­geni has ap­par­ently so far only re­ported once for com­mu­nity ser­vice.

WHAT THE OTH­ERS SAID VOLKS­BLAD PUTS ITS views strongly: “The sick cir­cus of the un­re­pen­tant fraud­ster, Tony Yen­geni, who has served a mere 20 weeks of his four-year ‘im­pris­on­ment’, con­tin­ues. The harm caused by the treat­ment of the ar­ma­ments scan­dal and peo­ple like Yen­geni, who even de­ceived Par­lia­ment, con­tin­ues.” Beeld says that Bal­four will cer­tainly have to take steps in or­der to re­store peo­ple’s con­fi­dence in the le­gal sys­tem.
