Criminal probe urged for top SA official

A South African inquiry on Friday recommended that prosecutors open a case against cricket boss Gerald Majola for a $600,000 bonus scandal linked to the hosting of top international tournaments. The commission was tasked by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula to look into graft claims surrounding South Africa’s hosting of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy in 2009.
An independent audit by accounting firm KPMG has already found that Majola and other top officials secretly got four separate bonuses totalling more than 4.5 million rand ($590,000, 415,000 euros) for hosting the matches. The commission headed by retired judge Chris Nicholson said Friday that prosecutors should open a case into violations of corruption and corporate law.
