Cape Town - The government is "processing" the report by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela on the SA Police Service's controversial R500m lease of a Pretoria building, the cabinet said on Thursday.

"Cabinet has instructed the Secretary of Cabinet (Cassius Lubisi) and the Minister of Justice (Jeff Radebe) to interact with the Public Protector's office on the report," spokesperson Jimmy Manyi told a media briefing in Pretoria, following the cabinet's fortnightly meeting on Wednesday.

Pushed for details on the matter, he responded: "Let's see where the process takes us; let's not preempt (this)."

Asked if the cabinet was concerned about the report's content - the document was made public last month - he said the executive took the office of the Public Protector very seriously.

He assured journalists that nothing "will be swept under the carpet".

Asked to provide a timeline for the government's processing of the matter, he said it was "quite an urgent matter", but did not give a date.

"All allegations will be dealt with... there is nothing to hide, so relax," he said in response to further questions.
