Cops raid public protector's offices

2011-03-03 11:13
Cape Town - An SA Police Service Crime Intelligence Unit has raided the offices of the Public Protector just days after it released a report into a R500m property deal involving General Bheki Cele, EWN reported on Thursday.

The raid took place on Wednesday and the officers were allegedly searching for documents relating to the report.

Cele’s office condemned the raid and said it did not authorise it and will take urgent steps against those involved.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found Cele guilty of improper conduct and maladministration, when police authorised a R500m lease for the Sanlam Middestad building, in Pretoria.

Cele defended himself against the findings saying, to his knowledge, only a court of law can find him guilty.
