In 2019, Corruption Watch and R2K received notice, that all opposition to the application by the Presidency and government departments was being withdrawn. This means that CW and R2K’s application would not be challenged and that it would, as a matter of course, be granted a default judgment.
Open Secrets and Shadow World Investigations have since laid a complaint with the Chief Justice as the Chair of the Judicial Services Commission (JSC). The complaint asks the Chief Justice to refer Judge Willie Seriti and Judge Hendrick Musi to the JSC because of their failure to investigate the Arms Deal during the life of the Seriti Commission. The complaint also asks the Chief Justice to consider whether certain actions by Judges Seriti and Musi may constitute criminal misconduct and, if so, to refer these matters to the NPA for further action.
