Van Dyk, Ms V to ask the Minister of State Security
Whether his department received a request to investigate Project Spider Web; if not, why not; if so, (a) who requested the investigation and (b) when was the investigation requested; • Whether the scope of the investigation will include (a) the origins of the document and/or (b) the particulars in the document; • Whether he will make a statement on the matter?
- The State Security Agency (SSA) received a request to investigate the Project Spider document in July 2015.
- The matter is therefore currently under investigation. However, as a matter of policy the SSA do not comment on the details of on-going intelligence operations as comment may compromise the security of the investigation.
