Hawks probe top cops - report

2011-03-25 11:12

Johannesburg - Senior members of the police will be probed by the Hawks in relation to the Krejcir case, the Mail & Guardian reported on Friday.

"A source close to the Hawks, an intelligence source and a prosecuting authority official have all confirmed that the investigation centres on former Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and the head of crime intelligence, General Richard Mdluli," the newspaper said.

Hawks spokesperson, McIntosh Polela, would not comment.

The newspaper said the probe was understood to focus on allegations that crime intelligence engaged in extensive phone tapping of Hawks members and others involved in the Radovan Krejcir investigation.

The issue of who motivated for this surveillance, who approved it and whether the information was passed on to Czech businessman Krejcir is a key focus of the investigation.

The M&G said it was alleged that the reason for the surveillance of the Hawks investigation was that the investigation was being manipulated by private forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan.

Krejcir handed himself over to the Hawks in Johannesburg during the early hours of Friday morning.

A raid on Krejcir's home on Tuesday night by the Hawks uncovered a :hit list" with four names on it. Krejcir, 42, was also facing fraud charges relating to a R4.5 million claim he allegedly made to an insurance company, after allegedly managing to obtain medical papers saying he had cancer.

Krejcir, was also being questioned on the death of underworld boss Cyril Beeka, who was gunned down in a drive by shooting in Cape Town earlier this week.

    Do the Hawks know what they are doing???

      Bratt - 2011-03-25 11:58

      The problem is that even if they find that all the top cops are corrupt (which SHOULD be inevitable by the way), WE end up being saddled with the cost of the court cases. Which for some unfathomable reason, suddenly cost MILLIONS... Do the public prosecutors and defense lawyers charge more for ANC officials aka top cops/fat cats?

      IandI - 2011-03-25 14:34

      Yes,they know it takes one skelm to catch another.

    Will the mossies(Hawks)be able to proper surveillance on both Mbasa and Mdluli?I am sure that they tapped the wrong phones.It is so hard to soar like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys.

      Souf-Efrikan - 2011-03-25 11:33

      Lol, you are so correct! They accidently tapped into Helen Zille's phone line :)

  • Charlton10 - 2011-03-25 11:28

    obviously not. They would be politically influenced.No match to the Scorpions.

  • Souf-Efrikan - 2011-03-25 11:29

    Spy vs police vs Hawks vs The Prez vz the Premier... and they are all supposed to serve the South African citizens???!!! They are all so busy tapping each other's phone calls, when do they get time to actually do their work? Something tells me they don't like the SABC soapies either, so they create their own real life dramas....

  • geyser.cape - 2011-03-25 11:30

    How do all these foreign criminals end up in SA and why are they allowed to continue their criminal activities? My guess is that the top cops are all in the pay of the criminals. We are really well on the way to a mafia state!

      e.henning101 - 2011-03-25 12:45

      These criminals just came to visit their SA family (the government!)...saw an opportunity or another oportunity was created and the stayed.

  • Clint - 2011-03-25 11:42

      You can start by wearing a rag on your head :)

  • Thelma - 2011-03-25 11:43

    And the plot thickens....Once again the NPA will most certainly make a deal with Krejcir to cover up all the underhanded dealings of top bras....when will/does it end?

      jkoorts - 2011-03-25 12:21

      hopefully at the next election mate. you know what to do.

      John - 2011-03-25 12:29

      Thelma you are so right when last did the name Agli (who) and Nasi (who) come up. These guys do what they want from Drugs to Murder. Confess all there sins , get witness protection then the case gets thrown out of court for lack of evidence. who says crime doesnt pay

      Ricardo - 2011-03-25 13:04

      They will make a deal so they dont end up on the hit list!

      Thelma - 2011-03-25 13:54

      John you will never ever hear those names ever again...to much will come out of the wood work.

  • bill - 2011-03-25 12:01

    These goons are rotten to the core- just the friends JZ likes.

  • GT - 2011-03-25 12:04

    These are all Selebilites, crocked to the core. We wonder why crime is what it is when we have the top of crime intelligence, head of the secret service, minister of intelligence ALL linked to serious organised crime.

      Linus - 2011-03-25 12:48

      Not to mention the wife of the safety and security minister currently on trial for drug smuggling...this is starting to smell like the inside of a pit toilet more and more everyday

  • tilovonbrandis - 2011-03-25 12:12

    Sounds to me that the cops are the private bouncers for the ANC. What makes it interesting is which Cops belong to which faction?

      Ricardo - 2011-03-25 13:06

      The rotter all belong to the ANC....

  • buzz - 2011-03-25 12:28

    And Beeka was just Mo Shaiks' friend, hey - finish and klaar...

  • e.henning101 - 2011-03-25 12:39

    Intelligence source...? Stop using these big names for words you don't understand... Intelligent people take down the correct details...and the, these intelligent people go to the correct addres. Okay... I can't take the suspense anymore...pleeeeaaaase tell us, what has Cele (the top cop) done now??

  • carjan - 2011-03-25 12:51

    The goverment and it's officials have an obese appetite for corruption. It can only be removed by surgical cut.

  • derkus - 2011-03-25 13:01

    they should change their name to The Budgies

  • Badger - 2011-03-25 13:30

    Ja Sure, tell us something we can believe. IDIOTS

  • ji - 2011-03-25 13:36

    lets just hope the HAWKS investigate the right people and hopefully at the correct address this time .

  • jiamalunga - 2011-03-25 14:14

    Criminals probing criminals.....Eish!

      maseratifitt - 2011-03-25 22:06

      ...and this during working hours. In my day probing on the job was a dismissable offence.

  • exocist - 2011-03-25 15:51

    when you probe use a hot poker

  • KaiinSA - 2011-03-25 17:02

    I can't see this poacher turning gamekeeper routine working to fool the ConCourt in to keeping the Hawks on.
