Steinhoff: Former CEO Markus Jooste arrives at Parliament

Sep 05 2018 09:10

Former Steinhoff CEO Markus Jooste has arrived at Parliament. Jooste, who has not been seen publicly since his resignation in December over accounting regularities, is expected to appear before several Parliamentary committees at 10:00.

Last week an agreement was reached between lawyers for Jooste and Parliament for him to appear, after a subpoena was issued to him by the Standing Committee on Finance in August.

Jooste has not spoken to media about what transpired at Steinhoff since he stepped down as CEO in early December. In a short WhatsApp message to colleagues shorty after he stepped down, he said it was time to "move on and take the consequences of my behaviour like a man".
