Johannes burg - There were mixed reports on Friday morning on the possible resignation of suspended Hawks head Anwa Dramat.

eNCA reported that Dramat had asked Police Minister Nathi Nhleko to relieve him of his duties, and the police minister was reportedly considering his request.

However, a police ministry official denied Dramat had resigned.

"In a letter in December [Dramat]... indicated that he would want a meeting [with Police Minister Nathi Nhleko] and would want to discuss his possible resignation," the minister's spokesperson Musa Zondi said.

"This is not something new. At the moment the minister and [Dramat's] lawyers are still discussing the matter."

Dramat was suspended on 23 December, pending a probe into his alleged involvement in the illegal rendition of four Zimbabweans in November 2010.

On 10 February Zondi said Dramat had been placed on leave following an agreement he reached with Nhleko.

On 6 February Judge Bill Prinsloo in the North Gauteng High Court ruled that his 23 January order allowing Dramat to return to work remained in effect, irrespective of any other appeal that may be brought.

Prinsloo also ruled that Nhleko's decision to appoint Major General Berning Ntlemeza as acting national Hawks head was unlawful and invalid.
