JOHANNESBURG - Former Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils says he will be taking legal action against State Security Agency director Arthur Fraser for allegedly forging his signature.

Author Jacques Pauw has revealed in his bestselling book The President's Keepers that Fraser forged the signature to purchase warehouses, farms and spy equipment.

Kasrils says his legal representatives are weighing their options.

“I’ve already spoken to my attorneys… they’re busy reading the book. We’ll have some discussion on this and I’ll consider the options open to me.”

The Fraser family has sent another request to Pauw to retract certain parts of his book which they have labelled as lies.

A statement issued on behalf of his family says false allegations have been published about them, including that 83-year-old Mrs Fraser is an agent for an intelligence unit dubbed PAN.
