Mdluli hands himself in - Hawks

2011-09-22 10:09
Johannesburg - Suspended Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli has handed himself over to authorities and appeared in the Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria, the Hawks said on Thursday.

"He appeared on fraud and corruption charges... yesterday [Wednesday]," said spokesperson McIntosh Polela.

He could not provide further details. Mdluli was reportedly released on a warning after his Wednesday appearance.

Love triangle murder

In March, he appeared in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court in connection with a 1999 love triangle murder and was released on R20 000 bail.

Mdluli and three others were implicated in killing his ex-lover's husband. At the time, Mdluli was the station commissioner at the Vosloorus police station.

They are charged with intimidation, three counts of kidnapping, two counts of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, attempted murder, and conspiracy to commit murder.

Mdluli faces an additional charge of defeating and obstructing the course of justice.

In his bail application, Mdluli argued the charges against him were fabricated as a result of a conspiracy against him by two senior police officials who tried to derail his promotion to the crime intelligence division.

He said people were trying to get rid of him because former president Thabo Mbeki's camp was trying to take over police intelligence ahead of the 2012 ANC elective conference.

Mdluli and his co-accused are due back in court next Friday.
