Hill-Lewis, Mr GG to ask the Minister of Finance
(1)What amount has been refunded to the State by a certain political organisation (name furnished) in respect of the irregular use of an SA Air Force jet to transport a delegation of the specified political organisation to Zimbabwe for talks with a political party in that country; (2) whether the specified amount is the (a) full and (b) final amount with which the specified political organisation will refund the State; if not, what action is the National Treasury taking to recover the full cost of the irregular flight; if so, what are the relevant details?
Any revenue due to the state flows to the National Revenue Fund (NRF) through departments concerned before it is surrendered to the NRF. As it stands, the Department of Defence is still working on the matter and will inform the National Treasury accordingly once the matter is finalised.
