Special Report Transcript Episode 47, Section 2, Time 08:20

The Army’s Directorate Covert Collection which Malan did not mention also engaged in third force activities, as did the cynically named Civil Cooperation Bureau. // The CCB organisation as a component of special forces was approved in principal by me. Special forces was an integral and supportive part of the South African Defence Force. The role envisaged for CCB was the infiltration and penetration of the enemy, the gathering of information and the disruption of the enemy. The CCB was approved as an organisation consisting of ten divisions, or as expressed in military jargon, ‘regions.’ Eight of these divisions or regions were intended to refer to geographical areas. The area of one of these regions, region six referred to the Republic of South Africa. The fact that the organisation in region six was activated came to my knowledge for the first time in November 1989. The CCB provided the South African Defence Force with good covert capabilities.
