Former spy boss lays criminal charges against Ramaphosa

The former head of the State Security Agency, Arthur Fraser, has laid criminal charges against President Cyril Ramaphosa over an alleged theft of millions in hard currency.

In a statement released late Wednesday, Fraser said the charges relate to over US$4-million (R62.4-million) that was stolen and kept at Ramaphosa’s farm in Limpopo about two years ago.

“The charges emanate from the theft of millions . . . in excess of four million US dollars concealed within the premises of the president’s Phala Phala Farm in Waterberg, by criminals who were colluding with his domestic worker,” he claimed.

Fraser said the charges also include defeating the ends of justice, kidnapping of suspects, their interrogation on his property and bribery.

According to the former spy boss, the president allegedly concealed the crime from the police or the SA Revenue Authority and paid the culprits for their silence.

“The evidence I provide shows that the said burglary took place on 9 February 2020,” said Fraser.

“This conduct of the president and those involved constitutes a breach of, inter alia, the Prevention of Organised Crime Act . . . and the Prevention of Corrupt Activities Act,” he added.

Fraser, who laid the charges at the Rosebank Police Station, says his supporting evidence – including photographs, bank accounts, video footage and names of those involved – is contained in his statement filed with the police.

“I trust that the police and the prosecuting authorities will investigate this matter without fear or favour,” he said.

“I also trust that the president will take the nation into his confidence and accept or deny that the events that I describe in my affidavit occurred on his farm.” – Staff Reporter
