About this resource:

In South Africa, the “Special Investigations Unit” is empowered to bring civil, administrative and criminal cases against public officials and government bodies suspected of corruption. People can report corrupt activities to the SIU for them to investigate. These reports can then lead to the SIU taking a civil action against the wrongdoer. It can take actions in its own name or on behalf of persons that have filed the complaint to the SIU. In addition, the SIU has a Special Tribunal where it takes civil proceedings against persons and organisations accused of looting money through corruption.
