What Belinda Wal­ter says ...

CityPress - - News -

Yes­ter­day, Belinda Wal­ter re­it­er­ated her stance that our re­port­ing on her last week was full of “re­pul­sive, un­true and bla­tant fab­ri­ca­tions”, and that she is su­ing City Press for defama­tion.

She said she wel­comed the in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the in­spec­torgen­eral of in­tel­li­gence and that she would not be “bro­ken” by her for­mer boyfriend, Jo­han van Loggen­berg.

Wal­ter said she did not want to dis­cuss per­sonal as­pects of her re­la­tion­ship with Van Loggen­berg or any other person.

She said the num­ber of lovers she had or had not had was ir­rel­e­vant to her com­plaint.

She said Van Loggen­berg had a his­tory of fab­ri­cat­ing ev­i­dence and that he had il­le­gally in­ter­cepted her com­mu­ni­ca­tion for as long as three years.

She added there was “an il­le­gal covert unit” within the SA Rev­enue Ser­vice (Sars) that was con­duct­ing un­law­ful op­er­a­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties.

She claimed mem­bers of the unit tapped phones and in­ter­cepted com­mu­ni­ca­tions with­out au­thor­ity.

Wal­ter said she had pro­vided in­for­ma­tion about the unit to the Hawks.

She made it clear she had not with­drawn the com­plaint at Sars against Van Loggen­berg, and in­sisted she was not part of the State Se­cu­rity Agency’s rogue Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Unit.
