Minister of Sport Makhenkesi Stofile, has demanded a copy of the 1999 Motimele report from the South African Football Association (SAFA) in a bid to get to the bottom of the match-fixing scandal.
The controversial report allegedly contains recommendations which would have eradicated some of the problems currently experienced in local football, including match-fixing and bribery.
McCaps Motimele, who headed the Motimele commission, warned about the dishonest nature of several referees arrested in Operation Dribble and also implicates some top SAFA officials.
Despite previous calls from several top officials to release the report publicly, SAFA has withheld the report citing that Operation Dribble would unearth all guilty in the match-fixing and corruption scandal.
However Stofile, who is currently in Athens for the Olympic Games, insists that the report be sent to him and also hinted at the existence of a second report, which was allegedly pushed aside by SAFA president Molefi Oliphant, who claimed "the report may never be published."
"I have written a to SAFA as a mother body to give me a copy of that report," Stofile was quoted by Sun Sport.
"I have been asked so frequently about it and I'm not familiar with the contents. I actually didn't even know that such a document existed, as you will probably note that I have only just assumed this post.
"But I intend to get to the bottom of this issue and I must say I'm very keen to have a look at it."
The Minister is adamant that he needs to know whether Operation Dribble would have been necessary had the recommendations in the report be followed and why the report was not made public.
"It is imperative that I familiarise myself with the report to see why it has not been made public, despite many calls that have demanded such," he said. "I want to see whether there were compelling reasons behind the decision."
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) appointed Motimele to head the commission and investigate the calls of bribery and corruption in the local game, a probe which cost them around R2million, but the report was rejected by SAFA, who cited that SAFA officials and referees fell under their jurisdiction.
