File:Director General of the State Security Agency, Arthur Fraser. Fraser was appointed to the position by Minister David Mahlobo on 26 September.
JOHANNESBURG – Former Intelligence Minister, Ronnie Kasrils says Arthur Fraser&39;s new appointment in Correctional Service&39;s is worrisome.
Fraser is accused of meddling in investigations into a parallel intelligence network.
Former Intelligence Minister, Ronnie Kasrils says, “There’s such a cloud over this mean surely he should have been suspended pending the investigation.”
[JUST IN] The SACP is calling for “decisive action” against State Security Agency boss ArthurFraser. The Party says, “Fraser’s attempt at frustrating the inspector-general of intelligence (IGI), Setlhomamaru Dintwe,seems to be an act of desperation and sabotage”. pic.twitter.com/0JCVibTl2R— Xoli Mngambi (@XoliMngambi) April 16, 2018
“When we see a move, it’s a demotion for sure but as you&39;re expressing yourself how can this man remain in this position with this cloud hanging over him.”
Fraser was implicated in state capture in the book The President&39;s Keepers. It says he is complicit in the looting of hundreds of millions of rands from a slush fund.
The President&39;s Keepers author, Jacques Pauw said that Fraser could be guilty of treason for setting up a home computer server into which reports were fed.
Fraser’s family says Pauw has allowed himself to be duped by an apartheid spy and a double agent who hides in Russia.
