Information technology services company EOH on May 19 said it has taken note of the intention expressed by political party the Democratic Alliance (DA) to take legal action against previous EOH management and related parties implicated in wrongdoing.
It stated that it welcomes this move and that of any other interested parties willing to support the efforts by the new EOH board to right the wrongs of the past.
"This is in line with the well documented actions of the current board to transparently resolve the legacy corruption issues, including submissions to the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC), the Special Investigating Unit (SIU), the National Treasury, the Hawks and the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture," the company noted.
EOH has also initiated its own legal proceedings against implicated parties.
"The DA’s announcement to pursue legal action in this regard further legitimises the comprehensive steps that EOH’s new board has taken over the past two years to create the EOH of today, which is an ethical organisation built on best practice governance, risk and compliance principles," the company said.
"EOH is proud to have been able to support the work of the Commission and our judicial system through the evidence presented by the EOH Group CEO Stephen van Coller and EOH’s legal adviser Steven Powell, who is head of law firm ENSafrica’s forensics department."
"EOH has come full circle in its commitment to rebuild the organisation and fully supports the Commission, the SIU and other relevant law enforcement agencies' efforts to remediate past injustices," the company said.
