Ex min­is­ter to sue Pauw

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

FOR­MER Public Ser­vice and Ad­min­is­tra­tion min­is­ter Geral­dine Fraser-Moleketi, her mother and sis­ters are tak­ing on jour­nal­ist and au­thor Jac­ques Pauw and have started le­gal pro­ceed­ings against him and Tafel­berg Pub­lish­ers.

Pauw and Tafel­berg have been or­dered to re­tract cer­tain para­graphs from his book, The Pres­i­dent’s Keep­ers, about the fam­ily which the women claim are un­truth­ful and defam­a­tory.

Pauw, in re­sponse to a query, said he was out of the coun­try and had not seen the let­ter.

“But it seems a bit silly to de­mand a re­trac­tion af­ter 200 000 books have been sold,” said Pauw.

Tafel­berg Pub­lish­ers did not re­spond to at­tempts for com­ment.

The le­gal no­tices, dated June 21, de­mand that Pauw and Tafel­berg “rem­edy this”. – Staff Re­porter
