Johannesburg - The police disciplinary hearing of suspended former crime intelligence boss Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli has been indefinitely postponed, The New Age reported on Tuesday.

The hearing was supposed to start on Monday at police headquarters in Pretoria.

Mdluli's attorney Ike Motloung told the newspaper the matter had been postponed for logistical reasons.

"The state has brought in outside senior counsel to handle the hearing," he said.

Motloung said he was busy applying for state funding for Mdluli's counsel in the disciplinary hearing.

National police spokesperson Brigadier Lindela Mashigo declined to comment on the hearing, the newspaper reported.

Mdluli was initially suspended amid charges of fraud and corruption and charges relating to the murder of his ex-lover's husband.

However, the charges were all later withdrawn and he was reinstated. He was then moved to another division before being suspended for a second time.

The Labour Court lifted the suspension on June 1, but less than 24-hours later the decision was overturned by the same court.

Five days later, Freedom Under Law was granted an urgent interim interdict preventing Mdluli from performing any duties as a police official, pending an application to reinstate criminal and disciplinary charges against him. Mdluli has applied for leave to appeal.
