Malema Arrest Warrant Issued

It is understood that an arrest warrant has been issued for firebrand politician Julius Malema.

While the Hawks have refused to confirm or deny the existence of such a warrant, there is an expectation that he will be arrested soon. The police have also said they know nothing of it. However reports claim that the National Prosecuting Authority said the SA Revenue Service had applied for a warrant.

The City Press had earlier on Friday said that Malema would be arrested soon and then appear in a Tshwane or Polokwane court next week to face charges of money laundering, corruption and fraud.

It seems as if some of the politics in ANC will now play themselves out in the court.

Bad move by the government, at this particular time. Not the best time to be doing this sort of thing.

Now, Malema has a right to remain silent… (We couldn’t resist).

UPDATE: Julius Malema’s lawyer has confirmed the arrest warrant
