Court to hear plea against former State Security boss

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Inspector General of Intelligence, Setlhomamaru Dintwe’s case comes before the High Court in Pretoria Thursday, asking the court to bar former State Security Agency director Arthur Fraser from interfering with Dintwe’s functions.

Fraser was moved to the Department of Correctional Services this week, but Dintwe has decided to go ahead with the case.

Last week, Dintwe launched an urgent court application, claiming that Fraser had sought to revoke his security clearance when he began to probe a complaint against Fraser.

State Security Agency spokesperson, Brian Dube says, “These allegations are the subject of a court process which is scheduled to start Thursday. Fraser had provided a responding affidavit to the allegations and we are hoping that those matters will be dealt with in a separate process which is before the court.”

Dube says, “The minister of State Security had indicated that she is concerned about the allegations and the court action that has been taken but had also said that it is important that these matters are dealt with within the confines and provisions of our laws and that is why at this stage we would not want to go into the merits and demerits of that case. Let the courts deal with it.”
