National Assembly: Cape Town, 09 November 2011
The Inkatha Freedom Party congratulates the
Department of Home Affairs with its recent launch of an ID
verification platform in partnership with the SA Banking Risk
This initiative which was launched yesterday
will allow banks access to the home affairs national
identification system (Hanis) enabling them to verify
information given by clients with the Department of Home
Affairs. We are certain that this initiative will go a long way
in reducing identity related fraud, theft and corruption and as
such is both very necessary and very welcome by the IFP.
Furthermore, it is an indication of the high
level of confidence placed by our private banking institutions
upon the Department and for that both the Minister and
Department must be applauded.
I thank you.
