SSA should be asking Pauw for help rather than fighting him - Lawson Naidoo

The President's Keeper

Jacques Pauw's latest book makes very serious allegations of a criminal nature about the State Security Agency, Sars and Zuma.

Casac's Lawson Naidoo says it is concerning how the institutions of the State supposed to hold people accountable, such as the State Security Agency and The Hawks, are the very ones that are captured.

Naidoo was speaking referring to the claims made by Jacques Pauw in his controversial book The President's Keepers.

Pauw alleges that there is complete secrecy that surrounds the State Security Agency's and that their budget is not audited by the auditors general.

He says the SSA spends billions every year, but as the country, we are not getting value for money because these institutions are in shambles.

These issues ought to be handled by the Inspector General for intelligence to ensure that that money is properly accounted for, and if not, where there have been transgressions, that prosecutions do take place.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary at Council For The Advancement Of The Constitution

This is a crisis that we are facing in this country at the moment - that there is a total lack of accountability on these issues.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary at Council For The Advancement Of The Constitution

Naidoo says with the allegations that Pauw has made, these State institutions should be lining up to speak to Pauw and asking for help on how to deal with issues at hand instead of trying to shut him up.

A serious allegation has been made that the President has failed to file tax returns for a number of years.

It's a huge indictment on Sars and its credibility and it will have a huge impact on the people's views towards the revenue service and their compliance on tax.
