The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) has arrested three police generals, a brigadier and a so-called provider for alleged fraud and corruption as well as forgery.
The police officers were arrested for matters relating to irregularities with the use of blue lights amounting to more than R60 million.
The accused appeared in the Johannesburg Specialist Trade Court after giving themselves up to the IPID after being identified with being involved in the alleged crimes.
The information was only announced by the National Police Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole, during a session of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Accounts.
