CAPE TOWN – Parliament has ordered scandal hit retail giant Steinhoff to name the executives accused of inflating profits and asset values.

The company is once again facing the fallout from its accounting scandal.

A report by auditing firm PWC names several executives, including former CEO Markus Jooste but those names were not revealed to the public.
