Jacques Pauw faces criminal charges

Jacques Pauw has been on a roller coaster ride since the release of his book ‘The President’s Keepers’. Following the release, the high demand resulted in the book being sold out and thousands of extra copies had to be ordered.

However, the popularity of the book attracted unwanted attention as well, which resulted in Pauw receiving death threats.

Then he received the threat of legal action from the State Security Agency and SARS. Now, criminal charges have been laid against him.

Briefly.co.zalearned from The South African that Gauteng provincial police spokesman Col Lungelo Dlamini confirmed that criminal charges have indeed been opened against Pauw.

The charges were reportedly laid at Lyttleton police station in Pretoria earlier on Thursday. Unsurprisingly, the charges are said to have been laid by State Security Agency (SSA) personnel.

“The SSA were at the police station yesterday (Wednesday). They were asking a lot of questions and there were discussions about this matter,” said a source.

Pauw said that he is not aware of any charges against him. Dlamini also revealed that he was not sure what docket had been opened or what the charges related to at this stage.

The SSA has sent two cease and desist letters to Pauw and people involved with the book over the last two weeks.

The agency has also called for parts of the book to be redacted. This frantic “cover-up” from government has seen the book sell tens of thousands of copies.

The demand is so high that several thousand more copies are currently being printed.

Pauw revealed that he has been told that the SSA’s Principal Agent Network (PAN) was created specifically to get the ANC back into power in the DA-run province.

“They said to me they are convinced this was part of an effort to make the Western Cape ANC again and that there were definite efforts to boost the ANC in the Western Cape,” he said.
