The South African government has stated that due process must be followed if it must return the $15 million arms money seized from Nigeria. PREMIUM TIMES has this story.

The South African government has indicated that it cannot return the $15 million arms money it seized from Nigerian arms dealers unless “due process” is applied in pushing for a refund.

Speaking on an African Independent Television (AIT) news programme on Tuesday night, the South African High Commissioner, Lulu Mnguni, reportedly said his country had no intention of keeping the seized funds but would only release it to Nigeria after due process has been followed.

“Well, obviously we also in South Africa don’t want to keep Nigeria’s money, but we want to follow due process to address it. It’s their money and so they would like to have their money back,” he said in response to questions about the controversial transactions that have sparked diplomatic row between the two countries.

The high commissioner did not indicate what that “due process” entails. But Nigeria may need to challenge the ruling of the South African court which gave the South African National Prosecution Authority the authority to freeze and seize the funds.
