On 14 April 2021, the CCMA directed correspondence to Advance Call, the CCMA’s anonymous whistle – blower fraud hotline. The purpose of the correspondence was to request Advance Call to facilitate engagement with the whistleblower for them to furnish further details regarding the complainant, for purposes of initiating an investigation.
Advance Call attempted to contact the Whistle-blower and sent a letter via email to obtain more information, however, no response has been received by Advance Call, and consequently, neither the CCMA.
Investigation into this matter cannot take place without further information from the Whistle-blower. It is for this reason that the CCMA does not have reliable and verified information regarding the financial transactions nor has disciplinary action been taken against the alleged Commissioner.
As per the letter to the Honourable Member dated 15 April 2021 on same, once the CCMA has received trusted advice of Advance Call on developments herein and legitimate reason to launch an investigation, an investigation shall be duly initiated and a report be furnished to the Honourable Member.
