The Hawks have confirmed they’re searching for a third suspect linked to the theft of R17 million from the State Security Agency (SSA).
They have also warned the public that he is believed to be dangerous.
EWN Reporter Barry Bateman on Wednesday said that the man, unlike the other two suspects, is not an SSA official.
