Cops caught on sex-and-bribes tape suspended

2013-05-10 13:20

A policeman filmed taking a bribe and a policewoman caught on camera performing a sexual act will be suspended.

“The content of the video is very disturbing and has warranted the management to take immediate action in terms of the SA Police Service (SAPS) disciplinary code,” said the police’s Brigadier Neville Malila.

“Internal disciplinary processes are under way, as prescribed by the regulations and policies of the SAPS.

“Notices of suspension will be served on the officers today (Friday),” he said.

The video was recorded in a parking lot near the East Rand Mall, in Boksburg, at 3am on Saturday, Beeld reported. A copy was sent to the police on Thursday.

According to the newspaper, the 20-minute video shows a Boksburg North Police Station vehicle drive into the parking lot, followed by a BMW.

A uniformed policewoman gets out of the BMW, followed by the driver.

The policeman reportedly climbs out of the police vehicle and waits for the driver to withdraw money from a nearby Absa ATM. The man hands bank notes to the policeman.

Beeld reported that the policeman is shown driving out of the parking lot and stopping at the roadside.

In the parking lot, the policewoman talks to the motorist, then helps him unzip his trousers and performs a sexual act on him.

He then gives her money, after which she runs across the parking lot to the waiting police vehicle.

According to the newspaper, the motorist watches them leave, zips up his pants and drives off in the opposite direction.

Gauteng provincial commissioner Lieutenant General Mzwandile Petros said there was no space for corrupt police officials in the service and they would be arrested without hesitation.

“The message was clear since 2010: If you are corrupt, leave the service or you will be arrested, but leaving the service will also not stop us from arresting you.”

Petros said since September 2010, more than 990 police officers had been arrested for corruption and other related crimes in the province, and that 469 members had been dismissed over the same period.
