In 2011, Judge Willie Seriti, a Supreme Court of Appeal judge, and Judge Hendrick Musi, former Judge President of the Free State High Court, were appointed to chair the Arms Procurement Commission, known as the Seriti Commission. The commission probed allegations of fraud, corruption, impropriety or irregularity in the 1999 arms deal involving former president Jacob Zuma and French company, Thales. It ruled that there was no wrongdoing in the deal. Now a complaint that the two judges overlooked crucial information has been referred to the Judicial Conduct Committee, to decide whether it should be reported to the judicial conduct tribunal.
