van der Westhuizen, Mr AP to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training
Whether her department and/or the National Student Financial Aid Scheme or any other body funded by her department laid charges with the relevant law enforcement agencies against those individuals who had allegedly committed fraud and who were identified in the Nexus Forensic Services report submitted to her department earlier in 2018; if not, (a) why not and (b)(i) how and (ii) by whom will this matter be handled in the future; if so, what number of individuals were named in the charges?
Nexus Forensics Services provided the Department with an extensive report containing findings and recommendations, which the Department is considering. The Department will revert to Parliament as soon as this process is finalised.
