Closer to home I would also like to welcome from the SAPS, Dr Chris de Kock, involved in crime research as Head of the Crime Information Management Centre, as well as Assistant Commissioner Govender, the Head of Interdepartmental Intelligence
Oosthuizen was the top police official of Stratcom, an interdepartmental intelligence
unit charged with carrying out "strategic communications" activities that reportedly ranged from propaganda and misinformation to assassination.
This structure enables Government to receive interdepartmental intelligence
pertaining to inter alia organised crime and facilitates strategic decision-making in this regard.
