Lotriet, Prof A to ask the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture
(1) Whether the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) pays any retainers to lawyers; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what (a) is the name of each lawyer, (b) amount is each lawyer's monthly retainer and (c) is the total amount of retainers that has been paid to each specified lawyer; (2) what were the total legal fees paid by SASCOC in each financial year since its inception
SASCOC indicated that;
1. SASCOC does not pay any retainer to any lawyers. Lawyers are paid as billed for each individual legal matter engaged.
2. Staff members are currently working remotely and will need to go to the office to extract the information required. Therefore we are unable to respond to this question at the moment.
