Task team to probe burglary at Hawks' HQ
Acting Hawks head Yolisa Mataka's given an assurance that a crack investigating team is attempting to get to the bottom of the burglary.
JOHANNESBURG - A crack investigating team is working to establish who is behind a burglary at the headquarters of the elite crime fighting unit, the Hawks.
It was confirmed on Wednesday that several computers were stolen during a burglary at the Silverton, Pretoria offices.
Acting Hawks head Yolisa Mataka has condemned the incident, calling it unfortunate.
She's given an assurance that a crack investigating team is attempting to get to the bottom of the burglary.
But sources have suggested that it may have been an inside job as access cards were used to gain entry to the particular offices targeted.
Meanwhile, Parliaments Police Portfolio Committee wants Matakata to explain the security breach.
The deputy Police Minister has also said that it would be a mistake to dismiss a potential link between this burglary and a similar incident at the Chief Justice's office earlier this year.
