Mdluli interdicted from executing duties

2012-06-06 14:36
Pretoria - Richard Mdluli has been interdicted from executing his duties as a policeman, a North Gauteng High Court judge ruled on Wednesday.

This follows an application by the non-profit organisation Freedom Under Law to prevent him from serving on the police force.

Judge Ephraim Makgoba said in his judgment that the FUL “had shown a prima facie case”.

“The sooner this matter is dealt with, sooner confidence in the police and justice system will be restored,” Makgoba said.

FUL had asked that Mdluli be prevented from performing his official duties pending the outcome of a review - which it intends applying for - of the decision to set aside civil and criminal charges against him, and of the decision in March to reinstate him.

The charges ranged from murder to corruption and fraud.
