THE EFF CONDEMNS THE MOVE OF ARTHUR FRASER TO THE CORRECTIONAL SERVICES

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

The EFF condemns the move of Arthur Fraser from the State Security Agency to the Correctional Services. A number of allegations involving high-profile politicians, their underhanded tactics, looting and running a parallel intelligence network outside of the government have been lodged against him. A court bid  has been launched against him by the Inspector-General of intelligence, and yet President Cyril Ramaphosa is basically rewarding corruption seeing as Fraser has not responded to all the questions around him and his involvement in the State Capture.

The Inspector-General of intelligence Setlhomamaru Dintwe has accused Fraser of interfering in and undermining investigations into him. Fraser has also been accused of threatening and intimidating the Inspector-General of intelligence. The spy boss claims he was unaware of the investigations, if this is the case then we still have no use for him in security structures of our government since he clearly is not a very good spy.

The EFF calls on the Presidency and the Minister of State Security to suspend Arthur Fraser pending further investigations instead of putting him as a leader in another government structure. If there is nothing to hide, Arthur Fraser has nothing to fear when subjected to the Rule of Law.
