A 34-year-old detective Constable will be appearing in court on charges of defeating the ends of justice after he was arrested by the DPCI Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation on 14 April 2023.
The Constable’s arrest emanated from a case of fraud and Contravention of Immigration Act against a foreign national businessman, Frank Buyanga who was charged on 28 November 2022 and subsequently refused bail as the accused was also wanted for kidnapping in his country of origin.
It is alleged on Friday, 14 April 2023, the investigation officer received a call from Johannesburg Correctional Service notifying him that another police officer, a Constable wants to book out the accused (Buyanga) for investigation. The I/O immediately requested the prison warders to delay him as he and his colleagues are on their way.
Upon arrival, the Constable from Mondeor Detectives was presented and further questioned where it was discovered that he had no case connected to the accused.
The member has been arrested.
