Hawks to decide on Malema probe

2011-07-26 15:08

The Hawks have received a case docket against ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, spokesperson McIntosh Polela has said.

“A case docket against Mr Malema has arrived at the Hawks offices from the Brooklyn police station,” he said.

Polela said the docket was handed to the head of the commercial crimes unit.

“That person is studying the case docket and we will make a decision on whether or not we will institute an investigation,” he said.

AfriForum opened a corruption case against Malema at the Brooklyn police station in Pretoria after City Press reported that he had a trust fund allegedly for deposits from business people.

The complaint was lodged according to the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act of 2004.

On Monday, ANCYL responded to the allegations in City Press, saying “the ANCYL president is open and ready for investigations by SARS [SA Revenue Service] and any other law enforcement agencies”.

The league leadership said the trust was no secret, it was used for charitable purposes and was “tax compliant”.
