On Wednesday Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane agreed with the courts that Gigaba had lied under oath about approving the Oppenheimer’s facility at the airport.
Fireblade Aviation said it was pleased that the Constitutional Court had dismissed Gigaba’s application for leave to appeal. This follows three separate rulings by the Pretoria High Court‚ a full bench of that court‚ and the Supreme Court‚ which have all found in Fireblade’s favour.
“With this decision‚ these legal proceedings have now concluded. We are satisfied with the result and the manner in which the legal process has culminated in a just and fair outcome‚” said the company in a statement.
