20th July 2015
Dear Mr Mantashe,
We refer to our letter of 23 June 2015 addressed to you, a copy of which is attachment “B” to the affidavit that is attached to this email.
We do not appear to have received any formal acknowledgment or reply, nor has any public explanation of an accountable kind been given for paying a “golden handshake” of R17,3 million to the former NDPP, Mxolisi Nxasana. We have however noted in the press that our said letter was apparently not taken seriously by you. In a Mail and Guardian online report of 24 June 2015 you are reported as saying of and concerning us “they can do what they want to do.”
The affidavit attached supports charges of contravening section 9 of PRECCA or alternatively defeating the ends of justice against the President and the Minister of Justice. We have caused an investigation docket to be opened and have suggested to the SAPS officer commanding the Ocean View police station that the matter ought to be handled by the Hawks due to its nature and the amount of money involved which is over R17,3 million.
We are forwarding to you herewith the substantive content of the docket, excluding forms and formal documents, as a courtesy and so as to keep you abreast of developments in the matter. Kindly acknowledge safe receipt of this email communication.
In order to assist you in better understanding the context of the complaint a copy of an opinion piece carried by the Business Day newspaper on 26 June 2015 is also attached. It conveniently contains the text of the section of PRECCA upon which we rely in making our criminal complaint.
