The Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) will also oppose the EFF’s court application for the disclosure of documents related to donations for Ramaphosa’s CR17 campaign to become ANC president.
The FIC officially confirmed this on Wednesday afternoon and added in a statement that it is because it is obliged under the FIC Act to protect the confidentiality of all information it provides to other parties.
The EFF wants the documents, which include bank statements from Ramaphosa’s accounts of its 2017 campaign, to be made public.
These documents have been sealed for more than a year by order of the court after Busisiwe Mkhwebane, the Public Protector, submitted it late at the time in support of a report by her which was later reviewed.
In the report, she found, among other things, that Ramaphosa had misled parliament about a R500 000 donation that the late Gavin Watson made to the campaign through his company Bosasa.
Ramaphosa said he did not deliberately mislead parliament because he was not aware of the donation.
If the contents of the FIC report are made public, it is a violation of FIC law, according to the statement.
