Pretoria - Suspended Tshwane metro deputy police chief Ndumiso Jaca will return to the Pretoria Magistrate's Court in October to file an application to have all charges against him dropped.

On Wednesday, magistrate Graham Travers postponed the matter until 10 October because the prosecutor, Heinrich Scholtz, was not feeling well.

Jaca's lawyer Andre Steenkamp told the court they had been informed that Scholtz, who was also in court, had been involved in a car accident. He had suffered neck injuries and was having headaches.

The 11 charges Jaca faces include fraud and driving a vehicle with unregistered, false number plates, and police lights.

During his last court appearance, Steenkamp asked for a postponement to enable him to draft the application to have the charges "quashed".

At the time, Scholtz told the court the State would oppose the application.

Jaca was charged in March following an Eyewitness News report alleging that he was driving a BMW Z4 with false number plates and police lights.

He was also allegedly seen on a Harley Davidson motorbike with the same number plate.

The Tshwane metro announced in January that Jaca's three-month-long special leave, which began in October, had been extended.
