Following the handover of the first part of the state capture report to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, the National Prosecuting Authority has revealed that its Investigating Directorate is currently investigating several matters contained in the report. News24 reports that the agency, which has previously been criticised for its failure to respond adequately to state capture allegations, revealed that they had established a dedicated task force to review all cases covered in the report. The NPA will be working alongside the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, otherwise known as ‘the Hawks’ and will also rope in the assistance of several departments including National Treasury, the department of public service and administration, and the justice department.
