JOHANNESBURG - Arthur Fraser, director-general of the State Security Agency, is to be moved to the Department of Correctional Services.

In a statement on Tuesday, the State Security Ministry said the transfer follows consultation between President Cyril Ramaphosa, Minister of State Security Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba and Fraser.
