The Financial Intelligence Centre says the information provided to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane was disseminated lawfully.
The statement comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa’s legal team alleged the FIC acted unlawfully.
The investigation relates to the R500,000 Bosasa donated to Ramaphosa’s ANC presidential campaign in 2017.
The FIC is defending its decision to hand over the bank statements, saying it acted within the prescripts of the law.
Mkhwebane used the banking details in her report on Ramaphosa.
She found evidence of money-laundering.
The President is challenging the report in court.
The FIC says it’s monitoring the legal showdown between Ramaphosa and Mkhwebane and will intervene if needed.
