Steinhoff's former CEO Jooste faces parliament over accounting scandal

CAPE TOWN, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Steinhoff’s former Chief Executive Markus Jooste was in parliament on Wednesday in his first public appearance to face a panel investigating an accounting scandal that rocked the retailer, a Reuters witness said.

Jooste, who is under fraud investigation by the South Africa police, resigned in December when Steinhoff uncovered accounting irregularities that sent its share price crashing.
