Bell Pottinger appeals DA’s complaint
Note to Editors: Please find attached a soundbite by the DA Shadow Minister of Communications, Phumzile Van Damme MP.
The DA can confirm that Bell Pottinger has submitted an appeal to the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), in reference to the decision to uphold the complaint filed by the DA.
The PRCA Board of Management will now meet again on Monday, 4 September, to consider this appeal and will issue its final ruling on Tuesday, 5 September.
The DA looks forward to the outcome of the ruling and we trust that PRCA will make the right decision in holding Bell Pottinger accountable.
We reiterate our call for Bell Pottinger to do the right thing and disclose all Gupta contracts and monies from their accounts with the Guptas and reinvest it into South Africa.
