Let me see if I get this. The SA government via Crime Intelligence could entrap a bunch of concerned citizens in the “Boeremag” saga, keep these guys locked up for more than 10 years while their farce of a trial is going on with SAPS intelligence officer testifying how the state manipulated and set up these guys, but they ignore known Al Qaeda terrorist camps?
Sounds like a typical anti-white, anti-Boer day in South Africa.
from Eye Witness News:
JOHANNESBURG - It has emerged that the police's specialised unit, Crimes Against the State (CATS) and the State Security Agency (SSA) have uncovered Al Qaeda linked military training camps operating in South Africa, but are doing nothing about them.
The year-long investigation by the Daily Maverick revealed inaction by the police despite incriminating evidence about the training camps and those who set them up.
State intelligence agencies started monitoring the activities soon after the World Trade Centre attack on September 11, 2001 but ceased their surveillance in 2010.
After nearly a decade of top secret surveillance and intelligence gathering, it has emerged that state intelligence has even stopped spying on known military training camps.
The Daily Maverick investigation found camps setup near Erasmia, east of Pretoria, on a farm in the Klein Karoo and attempts to create one at a golf estate along the Garden Route in Tsitsikamma.
The camps are equipped with training facilities and barracks which are believed to sleep mostly Pakistani and Malawian immigrants.
The operations are said be led by Johannesburg dentist, Junaid Ismail Dockrat and his cousin, Muslim cleric Farhad Ahmed Dockrat who have been identified as Al Qaeda financiers, recruiters and facilitators.
The pair dismissed the Tsitsikamma claims saying it emanated from a disgruntled former employee.
The Hawks declined to explain why their operation was halted, saying they do not comment on ongoing investigations.
United States and British intelligence agencies regard South Africa as an international terrorist halfway house.
For nearly a decade South Africa's intelligence agencies had been spying on Islamic military training camps and those linked to them, but this was all stopped in 2010, without an explanation.
In addition to the camps, undercover intelligence operatives in conjunction with the South African Revenue Service (Sars) have established that more than R9 million has been smuggled to terrorist organisations in the last two years.
In October 2008, SARS traced an amount of more than R31 million which was smuggled overseas by a Pakistani group.
