Steinhoff is being investigated for forgery, extortion, and theft.
Then run by Markus Jooste, Steinhhoff bought U.S. company Mattress Firm in 2016. Now it is battling former executives and a property broker.
The former chairman of the embattled company — and once South Africa's third richest man — is disposing of a Falcon and Boeing.
"The company might have been 'squeezed by Dutch law' to go ahead with the AGM."
Steinhoff's Dutch investors are suing the group for misleading them in its financial statements.
“People are cheesed off – he’s lost a lot of people money; a lot of pensioners, too.”
"The matter is now in the hands of the Hawks for further investigation and prosecution."
Jooste's attorney says he will not appear as he is no longer a representative for the beleaguered company.
The NHA has confirmed that Markus Jooste, following his resignation as CEO of Steinhoff, sold all his horses, including current race favourite, Legal Eagle.
Steinhoff faces lawsuits by investors in the Netherlands, Germany, and now South Africa.
The accounting scandal has also taken a steep toll on the wealth and lifestyle of some of its principals.
