SA’s investigation into Russian Vessel Lady R concludes

The inquiry into claims of wrongdoing involving the Russian vessel Lady R, stationed at Simon’s Town Naval Base, Western Cape, has wrapped up. According to the SABC, the investigation found that those who raised the allegations were unable to substantiate their claims before the commission. The unproven assertions, which had implicated the vessel in arms loading last year, had adverse effects on both the nation’s economy and its reputation.
