Arrests may be imminent in VBS investigation, says Hawks boss
Hawks head, Lieutenant General Godfrey Lebeya has confirmed to News24 journalist Mandy Wiener that arrests for top VBS looters are imminent.
Speaking to Refilwe Moloto, Wiener says Lebeya told her while some parts of the investigations are complete, they have to move strategically in carrying out the arrests.
Last year, advocate Terry Motau released his report into fraud and corruption at the bank which amounts to almost R2billion.
