South Africa youth activist and former ANC youth league president Julius Malema has been advised that a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
One of Malema lawyers confirmed on Friday that the former youth leader was informed about the warrant of arrest.
"He was contacted about an arrest warrant," Nicqui Galaktiou of Brian Kahn Inc. Attorneys told Reuters in an interview
However Galaktiou could not immediately give further details about the warrant.
According to sources Malema will also face charges related to tax evasion investigated by a
special task team of the South African Revenue Services (SARS).If arrested he is expected to be taken to Polokwane where he will be charged.
The Hawks confirmed last year in August that they were investigating him
for fraud and corruption. “From the information that we have, we have
enough to tell us that we need to do a full investigation ... there's a
lot that tells us that we have reason to worry,” Hawks spokesperson
McIntosh Polela was quoted in the media last year.
