News24 journalist Mandy Wiener outlines her interview with Hawks boss, Lieutenant General Godfrey Lebeya.

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.

We know that there are investigations going on within the investigating directorate in the NPA and also within the Hawks.

Wiener explains the relationship between the police and the NPA.

He did say they need to move quicker, he knows that people are patient but at the same time there is this interworking relationship between the NPA and the Hawks.

While the police may say a docket is court-ready, prosecutors may want to close more loopholes and do more investigations.

The 'Great Bank Heist' report by advocate Terry Motau is a treasure map, Weiner adds.

They seem to be at a point where they can make arrests in one leg. He explained that there are different legs in these investigations.
