Johannesburg - Former Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli is trying to force Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa to reinstate him despite a court order that prohibits him from working in the police.

According to the Sunday Independent, Mdluli argues that he has not been charged with any wrongdoing and that he should be able to head the unit.

Mthethwa, however, is said to be reluctant to grant the cop his way, citing the court interdict granted to the lobby group Freedom Under Law (FUL) in the Pretoria High Court last year.

Judge Ephraim Makgoba interdicted Mdluli from “discharging any function or duty as a member and senior officer of the police”. National police commissioner Riah Phiyega and Mthethwa are both interdicted from assigning any function or duty to Mdluli.

Last week, however, FUL filed its latest replying affidavit in the review application which, if granted, could result in Mdluli facing both criminal and disciplinary proceedings.

This comes after a litany of charges against Mdluli including murder, fraud, money laundering and defeating the ends of justice.
