CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South Africa’s elite police unit, the Hawks are investigating three criminal cases against crisis-hit Steinhoff International (SNHJ.J) (SNHG.DE), a senior official at the unit told parliament on Wednesday.

Steinhoff, which has more than 40 retail brands that include Conforama and Poundland, is in a fight for survival after admitting “accounting irregularities” in December, wiping about 85 percent off its market value and triggering a liquidity crisis.
