HAWKS NAB SEVEN POLICE OFFICERS FOR CORRUPTION

GAUTENG – Seven police officers between the ages of 42 and 55, attached to the West Rand Flying Squad will appear in the Westonaria Magistrate’s Court on 19 June 2023, to face a charge of corruption.

They were served with court summons (J175) by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation (SCI) team based in West Rand from 1- 6 June 2023.

On 14 May 2020 during hard lockdown, the police officials allegedly visited a tuck shop in Bekkersdal looking for cigarettes as the sale of cigarettes was prohibited for the period. They reportedly found cigarettes after searching the tuck shop and the back room.

The owner was arrested and the police team ostensibly took R40 000.00 from the safe and did not book it in the exhibit register (SAP13) when the suspect was detained. The matter was reported to the Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation for further exploration that resulted to the charge of corruption.
