In a number of abusive interventions on Twitter, Jacques Pauw has dismissed as lies Noseweek’s report that shortly before the release of the Sikhakhane Report he had intervened with City Press on behalf of SARS to stop publication of a story deemed hostile to Pravin Gordhan, Ivan Pillay and the so-called “rogue” spy unit at SARS.
Inter alia he claimed this was impossible as at the time he no longer worked for City Press and was setting up his restaurant in Riebeeck Kasteel. (Noseweek had never suggested that he was employed at City Press when he made the intervention on behalf of his friends at SARS.)
The series of emails reproduced here - from evidence found by forensic investigators employed by KPMG – amply demonstrate that Pauw was the liar.
