The President’s Keepers author, Jacques Pauw, says that a police officer in KwaZulu-Natal has tried to secure a warrant for his arrest at the Pietermaritzburg magistrates court.
Pauw says this follows a case opened at the North Durban Police Station by Roy Moodley, who is mentioned in the book as President Jacob Zuma's friend and an African National Congress (ANC)benefactor.
The magistrate has however rejected the application, which includes charges of fraud, crimen injuria and transgressing the Tax Administration Act.
Earlier in November, the Hawks confirmed it was investigating Pauw, but that he is yet to be charged for leaking sensitive information on President Zuma's alleged tax evasion.
Pauw says that he continues to stand by his book.
“I’m still not sure why they went to the Durban magistrate to get a warrant, but the magistrate told them to go away and wouldn’t sign it.”
