Johannesburg - The Hawks say they are in possession of a signed agreement in which a German arms dealer agreed to pay a bribe to a group represented by Shamim "Chippy" Shaik, the Sowetan reported on Friday.

Shaik, the brother of convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik, was working for the defence department as chief of acquisitions for the arms deal at the time.

The newspaper said it had a copy of the English translation of an agreement signed by Christopher Hoenings, who was at the time an executive at German warship manufacturer Thyssen.

"The last trip (July 27 to 30 1998) was suggested by C Shaikh (sic), director Defence Secretariat. During one of our meetings he asked once again for explicit confirmation that the verbal agreement made with him for payment to be made in case of success, to him and a group represented by him, in the amount of US$3 million (about R21m)," the agreement reads, according to the translation.

The Sowetan reported an unnamed source as saying on Thursday, that apart from Shaik, another 21 politically-connected South Africans allegedly benefited from the German bribe.
