The Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has reacted to Absa’s rejection of her claim that she subpoenaed the bank to provide account information relating to her investigation into President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Absa says it has received two subpoenas from Mkhwebane in the past 12 months and it has complied with both of them.
It says neither of the two subpoenas had involved any information about Ramaphosa.
Mkhwebane says she evidence to prove her claim.
“We have subpoenaed the records, they’ve never responded. I have proof, so we never received these records from them. We received the records through other investigative processes which we followed.”
“We have done our work, we have all the evidence, I can even produce those subpoenas, we have got proof that they were delivered and we didn’t receive any response from them.”
