The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation confirms that it has received a formal complaint that was registered at Ocean View SAPS in Cape Town recently against the Public Protector.

The National Head of the DPCI, Lieutenant General Godfrey Lebeya, confirmed the existence of allegations of perjury and defeating the ends of justice on Wednesday morning at a conference on fraud convened by the International Association of Financial Crime Investigators in Melrose Estate, Johannesburg.

The investigation is still at a foundation stage and it will be looked at with the necessary attention it deserves.
