WATCH LIVE: Former KZN Hawks boss Johan Booysen on Sunday Times saga

15 October, 10:51 AM

The Sunday Times has apologised and announced that it will return all awards and prize money received for now discredited reports on the Cato Manor "death squad", the SARS "rogue unit" and Zimbabwean extraditions.

With regards to the reports about a Cato Manor policing unit, Sunday Times editor Bongani Siqoko has said that the labelling of it as a "death squad" was unqualified.

Siqoko also said the articles had created an "impression" that then-head of the Hawks in KwaZulu-Natal, Johan Booysen, was "directly and personally responsible" for the killings.

Siqoko said that Booysen had told the newspaper he did not have any direct involvement in the unit – and "we have no reason not to accept his version".

Booysen joins News24's Mandy Wiener in studio to discuss the Sunday Times saga. Watch.
