Hawks brief Parliament on State Capture and other high profile cases
Members of Parliament have apparently expressed frustration at what they believe is the slow progress in state capture investigations.
On Wednesday, Hawks head General Godfrey Lebeya briefed Parliament’s Police Committee on some the unit's high profile cases.
This was Lebeya’s first appearance before the committee, two months after being appointed to the position.
Eyewitness News parliamentary reporter Gaye Davis has more on the briefing.
Coming up against quite a lot of frustration on the part of MPs as he took them through a report back on the big cases that they are looking at, particularly the state capture cases and MPs angry that he was not able to report more progress.Gaye Davis, EWN parliamentary reporter
Lebeya has told the committee they are working with Interpol regarding the extradition of the Guptas.
They are going to be dealing with this extradition either from India or Dubai, of the Guptas. He said they are not going to be categoric and give details about what he calls live cases. He also explained the process involved in extradition and the fact that you need a charge sheet that is more or less final...Gaye Davis, EWN parliamentary reporter
The Hawks have also requested the assistance of Interpol in their investigation into Steinhoff.
