CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) has brought corruption charges against State Security Agency director, Arthur Fraser and his family.

This follows explosive allegations in Jacques Pauw&39;s book, The President&39;s Keepers.

The book alleges hundreds of millions of rand disappeared from a slush fund, set up for State Security’s Principal Agent Network (PAN).

"An internal state security agency report itself recommended criminal charges should’ve been laid against Fraser and those implicated or then known as the PAN scandal. We want justice to be done.
