Commission (TRC) should be revisited. Former TRC Commissioner Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza, who headed up the TRC investigative unit, told the Tribunal that none of the big corporations who’d worked with the apartheid government came to plead for amnesty. Ntsebeza said that the TRC recommended that a wealth tax be imposed on white business as a form of reparations but this caused an outcry and was never implemented. Corporate accountability Director of the of Khulumani Support Group Dr Marjorie Jobson, said in a presentation that multinational corporations have evaded taking any responsibility for apartheid crimes and that key figures in the post-democratic state have turned a blind eye to them, in exchange for receiving shares or positions on boards. Jobson named companies such as, Shell, ChevronTexaco, British Petroleum (BP), Sasol, Barclays Bank, Citigroup, Credit Suisse Group, Deutsche Bank, J.P. Morgan Chase, Ford, General Motors, Daimler-Chrysler and IBM as having profited from dealings with the apartheid state. Justice Yacoob also expressed concern that notice will need to be given to those implicated so that they can choose to make representation in their defence. Evidence leaders said because the findings aren’t binding they could continue. Justice Yacoob encouraged all parties to submit their arguments, before findings are made.
