German revealed in his case that he was investigating the Permanent Secretary to the President (PSP) Emma Peloetletse, the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) Director General, Peter Magosi and the DCEC acting Director General, Tshepo Pilane. At the same time, the office of the suspended substantive DCEC Director General, Tymon Katlholo was raided and files of cases under investigation allegedly taken.
