Bring it on, says Julius Malema

2011-10-31 12:21
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has dared the Hawks to lay charges against him, the Daily Sun reported on Monday.

"Bring it on! I am tired of being threatened," Malema told the newspaper.

"Everybody is setting the Hawks on me. I have never done anything wrong and maybe it would be better if the Hawks charge me so that I can explain these allegations in front of a magistrate."

Malema was responding to reports that he faced arrest on charges related to his financial affairs.

Evidence

He said if the Hawks had any evidence against him then they should prosecute him.

"If the Hawks are going to open a case against me, that's good. Let those who have evidence come forward," said Malema.

"Those SMSes they are talking about and the money they say they deposited into my account must be explained in court."

The Hawks declined to comment on the matter on Monday morning.

The Times reported that a joint investigation by the Hawks and the SA Revenue Service into the youth leader's financial affairs was almost complete.

It said the probe was "as good as complete" and it was "just a matter of time" before authorities acted.
