Former spy boss, Arthur Fraser has on Wednesday met with the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, the Hawks to assist them with their investigation into his complaint against, President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Fraser said in a statement issued on Wednesday he provided the Hawks with new information and details to help them do their work.
He said the Hawks showed professionalism and promptness in responding to his complaint.
Frase filed a criminal complaint against President Cyril Ramaphosa on June 1, 2022, at a Rosebank police station in Johannesburg.
In a 12-page sworn statement, Fraser accused Ramaphosa of kidnapping, bribery, money laundering, and “concealing a crime” in relation to the alleged theft of $4 million from his Phala Phala Game Farm in Bela Bela, Limpopo.
The heist was confirmed on June 2 by Ramaphosa’s office, and he claimed he reported the case to the head of the South African Police Service’s Presidential Protection Unit for investigation.
Ramaphosa didn’t report the robbery to the South African Police Service because it occurred on private property, not a national key point, the Presidency said.
The president has denied alleged misconduct and said the amount of money stolen was substantially less than what Fraser claimed.
“I will therefore not be responding to speculation, conjecture, allegations, or so-called revelations. These must be ventilated in the proper and appropriate forums. I repeat, the law must take its course,” said Ramaphosa.
