Officers in court on fraud charges

2016-03-03 06:00

TWO policemen, a 47-year-old warrant officer and a 36-year-old sergeant, both stationed at the SAPS Vehicle Identification Section in Port Shepstone, were arrested on Monday by members of Port Shepstone DPCI: Organised Crime Unit for corruption.

The corruption charge relates to a transaction where the two accepted money, and in exchange, undertook not to oppose bail for an accused in a house breaking and theft case earlier this month. R5 000 was paid to the police members.

The two appeared in Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court yesterday and were released on R2 000 bail each. “The necessary internal departmental investigation will also be done,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

The case was postponed to 24 March. - Supplied.
