JOHANNESBURG - The People’s Tribunal on Economic Crime in South Africa resumes at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

The Treatment Action Campaign’s Zackie Achmat will address the tribunal on the cost of the controversial arms deal.

A whistleblower has implicated two former French presidents and Mac Maharaj’s wife in a huge arms deal cover-up.

A portion of the deal was allegedly transferred to Zarina Maharaj, the wife of the former presidential spokesperson.

The Public Affairs Research Institute is expected to speak on state capture at state-owned enterprises.

The tribunal's aim is to address human rights abuses and war crimes.

It is the first of its kind to focus primarily on economic crimes and corruption in South Africa.

The tribunal's preliminary findings will be released on Wednesday.

Its findings are not legally binding, but they will be handed over to the relevant authorities.
