One of those implicated in the misleading reports is former KZN Hawks head, Johan Booysen. 

He was arrested soon after the Sunday Times first reported on the Cato Manor unit. 

Booysen spoke to eNCA.

The Sunday Times will return all the awards and prize money presented to its reporters, for their stories on the Cato Manor "death squad", the Sars "rogue unit" and the Zimbabwean renditions.
