An unknown number of suspects have managed to steal at least six laptops containing information which was due to be presented at the Zondo commission.

An unknown number of suspects have managed to steal at least six laptops containing information which was due to be presented at the Zondo commission.

City Press has reliably learnt that burglars ground the external burglar bars and broke into the offices of Advocate Schabort Potgieter last Friday. They then gained entry to the building in Kilner Park, Pretoria, and burgled the safe where the evidence was kept. Potgieter is an attorney acting for the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) for the state capture commission submission. “They went directly to the safe and ground the safe where laptops were stored. They stole six laptops which had information about the capture of Prasa. “When [Potgieter] came to his office building to collect some documents for the commission on Saturday he noticed that there [had been] a break-in,” a highly placed security cluster source revealed. City Press has learnt that Potgieter told police at Pretoria Moot Police Station on Saturday that the commission had served various suspects with summons, which, according to him, was “an attempt to defeat the ends of justice”. The police are investigating a case of business break-in. At the time of publishing, Potgieter, Prasa and the police had not responded to City Press inquiries. This is a developing story.

There was noty ing as such infact there is no state capture, stop fooling us How convenient The cloud containing the backups also held up? Have you guys heard of the cloud ... FFS!!! Really sefapano, what clouding storage Cloud. External hard drives. How about a simple safe with a complicated lock? Nah.... This does not smell right.

Those computers would have long been imaged by werksman and other entities that did forensic work for Prasa since the derailed report by Thuli No surprises there You never had of cloud computing? Hahahahahaha. But of course it was. It just proofs that the Commission is having it spot on

LIVESTREAM: Zondo Commission hears SSA related testimonyThe State Capture Commission of Inquiry continues on Wednesday.

Ha Schabort potgieter is lying , there was no evidence in the first place. They can run🏃but they can't hide, ultimately the truth will out, ask one Jacob Zuma!🙏 And the information wasn't backed on cloud? Stellarated please come and get your people and teach them. As part of their disaster recovery policy (if they do have one) where is the back up of their information,which is supposed to be kept offsite and managed by an outside company?

Why were they not saved in the cloud ?🙄 Fire the whole Prasa board and freeze all their assets. Media was still focused on allegations made in parliament by Boy Mamabolo, jikijiki, Laptops gone “Stolen”. LOL. How is this possible? Someone has obviously been tipped off and organized the theft! Ridiculous! Stuff should have been secretly secured in a place that nobody affiliated to the case knew!

WATCH LIVE | State capture commission continues to hear security agency testimonyThe commission of inquiry into state capture will continue to hear aviation-related State Security Agency (SSA) testimony on Thursday.

What a coincidence! refilweafrica No one thought to do a f*cking back up, Jesu! This is the same thing that happens to police dockets nxa Yawn 'stolen' How the fuck guys! Bwahahahaha. And of course no back ups? 🤡🤡🤡 😂 😂 😂 😂 Aaaa Abramjee _Karabo_M By who SSA This is South África under the ANC, for those who've forgotten or don't know.

WATCH LIVE | State capture commission continues to hear security agency testimonyDeputy chief justice Raymond Zondo on Wednesday objected to “Mr Y”, an employee of the agency, bringing an application under the name of his employer to give evidence in camera.

It’s 2020....obviously it’s backed up? Convenient isn't it? No problem. They probably have 4 backups in safe storage. Cloud, offsite, bank vault, etc. This is 2020 so no issue. Julius_S_Malema AdvZinhle This is nonsense they know who took them. Santa-frika ya ANC guavament, yah neh 🤣 Pathetic as per comments no excuses are justified

This country is like Wikus circus Just laugh. The whole of South Africa has become a joke.

WATCH: State Capture Inquiry, 19 February 2020 - SABC News - Breaking news, special reports, world, business, sport coverage of all South African current events. Africa's news leader.The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture is Wednesday expected to hear testimony from Nokunqoba Dlamini - the evaluator at the State Security Agency.

Puso e ea lapisa! If these laptop are not found you will vote for yourselves...because as citizens of this country we are not taken seriously. You do as you please...if Potgieter is not arrested for this🤐🤐🤐 Julius_S_Malema Convenient for somone. I trust an advocate with such important info has the intelligence to have cloud or off site back up.

Amazing shit goes in this country! Ever heard of encrypted cloud storage Mmmm wonder how much did that transaction cost. Lol, you cant make this shit up, so who knew about the laptops? So the computers were never down loaded. Cover-up Maru a kae? ☁️ Julius_S_Malema Time has come that the country invest in cloud technologies. Lost dockets, lost laptops and unaccounted transactions on public funds will things of the past.

So as if the information is a physical copy that cannot be copied off the laptop? lmao I don't even know where this finesse begins or ends😂

How Dudu Myeni's water board 'laundered more than R2m in 40 days'The Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture on Tuesday morning heard how R2.3m, siphoned from Umhlathuze Water, was laundered in 2015 using various companies So? So what of it? This is all a waste of my money as a tax payer, if nothing is going to happen about all this. Arrest her or stop wasting our time! Siphochirwa32 So we waisting Hundreds of millions to find out Myeni took R2M, what happened to the Bosasa issue cause that was real state capture?

Question is, who is Advocate Schabort Potgieter and who is he representing? How convenient. 🤡🤡🤡 Nothing new Hawks should interrogate everyone who's implicated in Prasa state capture with immediate effect. inside job Welcome to South Africa 😀😀😀 MYANC arranged a bit of stealing to happen, conveniently. Taking a few pages out of Putin pages. What next? A few missing people?

Hmmm....follow the money! Someone paid for that to vanish! How convenient, who hasn’t heard of cloud storage.

Of course they were😌 WHAT A SURPRISE - tongue in cheek No surprise there. Zuma/eish and their stratcom opperators at work to prevent the looters drain being blocked. Arrest him then. Clearly a lie, even with our crime rate this is just nonsense excuses Tell me you are joking 😭😭😭 Julius_S_Malema Yang mara heh yang🙄

hope they have back ups Julius_S_Malema Juju ask them for the USB mara... TimModise IS STATE CAPTURE A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE OR WHAT? So this crook was going to take the 6 laptops 1by1, I mean by one by one and open them to show this evidence. They think we're idiots these whites.

Wow. Knowing the value of the information contained on the laptops, one would have expected topflight security, but what do I know. Abramjee Aker la bona... this state capture nonsense is just a waste of time & money And you still preach about 4th industrial revolution. How convenient for someone, look there...

Why am I not surprised Definitely an inside job. Polygraph tests should smoke out the guilty. There was no evidence here. Nxa they must investigate that ADVOCATE sold to the friends and anyway their commission is USELESS Julius_S_Malema 'stolen' Does not come as a surprise at all! 🙄

I smell an inside job. Whoever is responsible for the safekeeping of those laptops should be held accountable. How the department(or that specific individual) still isn't using clouds In 2020 is appalling. So no back up🤔 1IR.... Y'all still on 2IR right? sstumza_irvin Maburu nkare atlo ntena yanong when you recruit clowns who are technologically challenged this is what you're going to get, before you give them those laptops program them to save on cloud and Google drive or the company networks

Hhay, lamapopayi adlalwa la kule 'cowntry'. Staged mkasi_gift 👀 Lol 😂😂😂😂😂😂🚮

4IR anyone I am sure there is appropriate backups in place. Julius_S_Malema Is a joke or something 🙆🙆🙆🙄🙄🙄? Abramjee So the information on those laptops where not copied anywhere on the hard drives or you are making us fools Julius_S_Malema Zwivhuya_Lt zia vhuya SHANGONI LA HAVHO MANI Doesn't he have cameras at his office knowing there's a sensitive information?

Julius_S_Malema Im sure there are audited backups ... Julius_S_Malema Schabort Potgieter,,knows,,something ,something he should be taken to task..wrong people were implicated..and look again who is reporting Or there was never sufficient evidence to proof state capture now we resort to trickery to enhance the narrative that the state capture existed, it is tough for the poor and those who rely on mainstream media for information.

Julius_S_Malema 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Mmncuuum I’m becoming dump to ask question; where is the back for this sensitive data? WTF Julius_S_Malema 😂 😂 Its that simple isn't it. Julius_S_Malema We have icloud for a reason pierredevos This is Africa !!! No backup? And we talk about 4IR Abramjee Gov is fools lol, this info is on laptops only hahaahahaahhaaah

And the 4IR... CathyMohlahlana It’s obvious

Abramjee Salute the thieves for doing homework and acing exactly what needs to be nicked. And of course due to technical reasons there was no back up on cloud 👏🏽👏🏽🤨😀 Abramjee When they don't know how to hack, they take the entire lot with them. 🤣 Abramjee They should save on Google drive next time

Abramjee South Africa 'Since we have no evidence for state capture, we had better weave lies if we are to conclude Zondo Commission' With so many methods and external devices of info storage this sounds like a blatant lie. Abramjee Inside job....? Stolen, no break-in Abramjee 😂😂😂😂pls tell me again Abramjee This governance honestly thinks that we are as dumb as they are

Abramjee This is a lie Ufun'induku loSkaboriti. Kudlaliwe ngathi Getting rid of evidence by any means ! It's a lie, there was no evidence at all. Our country thinks we that stupid. The incompetence though...I would have taken them with me and put them somewhere. Now look...who's taking the nose dive Taxpayers money funding the Zondo Commission

Ahhh They take us for poeses! CoruscaKhaya There was no evidence at the first place

Arrested every one. cci_network Smacks of government cover up that There was never information to begin with Dis satafrika... Clouds all over must not take us for fools People in SA higher public positions are so comfortable to the belief that ordinary South Africans are just the fluff. They can throw any stupid excuse to us and expect us to believe that nonsense. Every organisation have a back up policy for any information, let alone that vital

An absolute JOKE..... Arrest Potgieter and Montana right away.... They should be the first suspects...... What a JOKE 😂😂😂😂😂😂 That's what happens when u employees criminals in the name of veterans while they left the country burning in apartheid era then welcomes heroes ThembiMrototo Pits.... Agh these things went stolen they were sold for the right price!

is an easy thing to use. How in this day in age do we still store information on laptops? Something is not right here Lol oh please We are not respected in this country uyazi Lol Not 1, not 2 but 6 laptops CLOWNS...external hard? Cloud storage? Drip box? Banna Republic at its best tsek! pierredevos Does the zuma parallel ssa still exist...

The security was not tied. Do we say inside job or security bridge. Anything is possible in South Africa. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ Wahahaha another story that even Hollywood screenwriters could not dream up. OK so? Just retrieve the damn information. Cloud computing!!!

We are in a circus These articles should end with a phrase that says 'As expected' This country is a joke MbalulaFikile what’s happening in your department sir?

Oooooookay...alright! Whose laptops where they? There is network drive G for employees backup aker 😂😅. Besides, what was going to be presented, laptops or information extracted from laptops which can be verified by forensics. Ska la re nyela on Friday Morning with lies

Clouds all over. Ceeya_Mav This country mara Advocate got answers South Africa South Africa Seems the capture continues SITA this side Not surprised Yerrr, yazi I Give up How ICONIC not to have backup mara?! MbalulaFikile 1. Who knew that they have the info? 2. Was the safe broken open, who had the keys/combination? 3. Was the people implicated still working there? 4. Who was supposed to look after them? Your inside jobs is old school boys and we need that information Minister

pierredevos I trust that they were intelligent enough to backup the data on a cloud server or a couple of external hard drives?

So who will be blamed for this, or rather which racial group as most on this platform will say the apartheid gvt is to blame or some Indian peeps. I'd love to know so tweeps let us know sramphaul cci_network Ja right If this was the series, '24' JackBauer would already have a lead on who it was, camera's in the building, finger prints as well as locating the 'mole' on the inside who gave the information to crooks and co. GovernmentZA PresidencyZA GenBheki_Cele SAPoliceService

That's Satafrika for you. It's not a surprise👨‍💻 Whenever high profile individuals in this country have to be held accountable, things like these happen. It is a joke really. How do they know what they contain? They are playing. CoruscaKhaya Gangsters Paradise In the age of cloud computing? 🤔 as of the comrats knew how to use a computer?! Did you not see the online reg fiasco of the ANC big wiggs? They still not registered!

Imaginary evidence. Tobesky15 Hahahaha...a joke!! Mxm. Everything is a joke in this country. We in a country of Mr Bean😲 Zuma's SSA at work. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Lol that's ANC using laptops as if it's a paper and can destroy information by burning laptops What a joke 😂😂😂😂 How convenient... Given the sensitivity of the matter it will make sense to have backed those up in a cloud.

🤣

This country! Nonsense Billions of Rands were looted from Prasa, implicated suspects like Lucky Montana, Makhensa Mabunda and Auswell Mashaba are not just going to fold their arms! There was never any Evidence Did NOTHING get backed up on a cloud server or external drive? Makes no sense Surely that cannot be the only copy StateCaptureCom. Clear indication of an inside job. MYANC MbalulaFikile RonaldLamola CyrilRamaphosa tito_mboweni NPA_Prosecutes

What a joke... Its like cloud storage never existed Logic says you backup everything, I'm sure this was done so no need to worry. ThembiMrototo Welcome to South Africa 🇿🇦
