Intimidation tactics? Police gun for Jacques Pauw

“There is no indication that the authorities are showing similar interest in what we have exposed‚” he told TimesLIVE. “I suspect it is related to the contents of Pauw’s book and what I have written previously.”

Myburgh also authored the book The Republic of Gupta‚ which detailed allegations of the grip the controversial Gupta family have on government and President Jacob Zuma.

Pauw was not immediately available for comment‚ but the publishers of his book reiterated that it stood by him and his work.

“We are communicating with the authorities through our attorney trying to find out more about the nature of the complaint‚” NB Publishers said on Thursday.

“We are willing to cooperate but stand by our author and our book. We are concerned about the lack of transparency from the authorities on this matter.”

The South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) on Wednesday said it viewed the actions as intimidation tactics.

“Our message as Sanef is very clear. We’re not going to stay silent … journalism is not a crime‚” News24 quoted Sanef deputy chairperson Katy Katopodis as saying.

Police spokesman Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo‚ who was not immediately available on Thursday‚ told News24 that Pauw and Myburgh were not under investigation and that no case had been opened.
