PRETORIA– There are rumours abound suggesting that the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) Acting Head Lieutenant General Yolisa Matakata has travelled to United Arab of Emirates as part of an enquiry regarding the alleged corruption and email leaks the Hawks are currently investigating.
Two national newspapers have so far persistently inquired about these unfortunate rumours and the said publications are likely to run with the said gossip despite our confirmation to the contrary.
For the record, the rumours are devoid of any truth. Lieutenant General Yolisa Matakata has travelled abroad to honour an invitation from the Department of International Relations to participate in the 1st Myanmar Senior officials meeting at Nay Pyi Taw, on the 17 August 2017.
The purpose of the trip is to establish the framework of cooperation that would allow collaboration in relation to the prevention, combatting and investigation of transnational crimes between the two countries.
