The Hawks on Friday confirmed they are investigating a government official for corruption involving R1.6bn.

"There is no formal charge at the moment, but we can confirm that a preservation order was applied for in the high court," Captain Paul Ramaloko said.

"Most of this matter is before court."

The corruption was allegedly committed during the official's term of office. Ramaloko declined to provide details, including the official's name.

Special Investigating Unit (SIU) spokesperson Boy Ndala declined to comment, saying the matter was sub judice.
