Cape Town - The lawyer of a Hawks police captain accused of conspiracy, extortion and corruption withdrew on Tuesday from the case in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court.

Ross McKernan did not say why.

Captain Patrick Yizaya Siyali, 51, told the court he would appoint a new legal representative from LegalWise and not from legal aid.

Siyali appeared in court on Tuesday and was warned by Magistrate Zwelidumile Sogwagwa to return for his next appearance.

The case was postponed to 9 November.

At his previous appearance on 5 July, Siyali was released on R10 000 bail.
