The arms deal cache

filename~~~2011/06/23/gripen_ready-1.jpg

amaBhungane presents the Arms Deal Cache, an online resource to spread knowledge about South Africa's arms deal scandal and enlist the public in efforts by journalists and campaigners to expose the truths that authorities have so studiously ignored.



The cache will be supplemented over time with many more of the documents collected during our and the Mail & Guardian's decade-long, award-winning investigations into the scandal.



Be the first to know when we add new documents to the cache by following SAarmsdealcache on Twitter.



Want to tell us what you've found? Or add more documents to the cache? Email amabhungane@mg.co.za -- anonymous postings welcome.



Disclaimer: Investigations are works in progress. Some of the documents below contain allegations which remain unproven. They are included because a full airing of the scandal is in the public interest, but remember that all persons are innocent until proven guilty.
