Jacques Pauw, the South African author of the damning book of SAs government, faces criminal charges laid against him by the State Security Agency (SSA) on Wednesday. His book was officially released last week and has caused a wave of controversy and friction between the SSA and the South African Revenue Service (SARS). The book contains many damaging accusations against the president and key state agencies which breach the Intelligence Services Act. 

The SSA notified him that they would be pressing charges, demanding him to remove some of the sections from the book to which he refused. The book has become a best seller with 35 000 copies sold within it's first three weeks and, with huge demand, is already at the press for its second press. There is also a pdf version doing the rounds too.

Despite death threats that Pauw has already received over the book, he refuses to back down but NB publishers are taking the threats very seriously and have brought on a lawyer, Willem de Klerk, to defend both the publishers and Pauw.

SARS haven't jumped on the criminal charge bandwagon yet but have accused Pauw of breaking tax laws by revealing the president's lack of tax return submission.

While the SSA continues to cry inaccuracy in the book, it is flying off the shelves as millions of South Africans uncover the truth behind the government.

The SSA isn't all talk. The book launch on Wednesday was cut short as a power outage occurred in Hyde Park shopping center. The generators did not restore the power at all, which left Exclusive Books CEO baffled. 

The whole saga has South Africans sitting on the edge of their seats. Stay tuned for updates as they happen.
