The only thing to do is suspend Fraser says Executive Dir of Corruption Watch

Inspector-General of Intelligence

ISS and Corruption Watch react to claims by Inspector-General of Intelligence that SSA head Arthur Fraser is intimidating him.

The Inspector General of intelligence has accused State Security Agency boss Arthur Fraser of misusing public power and state resources to shield himself from an investigation.

Dr Setlhomamaru Dintwe makes the damning allegations in an affidavit filed in a High Court application to stop Fraser from interfering in his work and intimidating him.

The Director-General is the subject of a fraud and corruption investigation for allegedly setting up a rogue intelligence structure when he was the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency nearly 10 years ago.

Head of Governance, Crime and Justice at the Institute for Security Studies Gareth Newham reacts to the claims by saying that the entire situation is astonishing and needs urgent attention.

The Constitution makes provision for the Inspector-General of Intelligence, and that was given further expression in the 1994 act says Newham.

To suddenly have a situation where the Director-General of Intelligence suddenly revokes the security clearance of the Inspector-General of Intelligence who is in the process of investigating him is highly irregular.

Executive Director of Corruption Watch David Lewis adds to that by saying that he doesn’t see how under these circumstances, the President can to do anything other then suspend Fraser.

Lewis says that there were grounds for the investigation and still doesn’t understand how Fraser can stay in his position and do the things he has done.

It feels like someone who is desperate using the last of his power to cover up.
