Mbeki didn't make that claim, he pointed out that this was what the commission found:Citation about the German Prosecuting Authorities' actions on Ferrostaal's conduct.
Here's the Ferrostaal submission, where they mainly make the legal case why their report shouldn't be included.
Can't find anything about the German Prosecuting Authorities doing what Mbeki says they did.
So the citation would be the commissions report.the Judicial Commission established that the German Prosecuting Authorities had investigated the corruption allegations relating to Ferrostaal, which investigations were started by the Düsseldorf Prosecutor’s Office. This Office then referred further investigations to the Bochum Prosecutor’s Office (Staatsanwaltschaft Bochum). Having carried out these investigations, the Bochum Prosecutor’s Office communicated to the Düsseldorf Prosecutor’s Office and said:
31. “As regards the background assumed by the (Düsseldorf) author of the memo (filed as) folio 7 et seq. of the files (bribery of foreign officials) it is to be noted that no specific or substantial evidence whatsoever exists that would corroborate that assumption.”
