Naked pic police not reported to ICD

2011-08-10 14:15
Pretoria - A woman who alleges that a policeman ordered her to strip so he could photograph her has yet to lodge a complaint with the Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD), it said on Wednesday.

ICD spokesperson Moses Dlamini said he was not aware of a case being lodged with the ICD. He said the policeman could not be investigated until a complaint had been brought.

Marina Kloppers, 23, said she was being driven home by a friend late on the night of July 21 when the friend went through a red light in Mayville, Pretoria, as she felt it was unsafe to stop.

She said a police van followed them, stopped them and that two policemen made them get into the back of the van. They took the women to a clinic in Laudium to test their blood alcohol levels.

Kloppers alleged that while at the clinic, one of the policemen ordered her to strip so he could photograph marks on her body.

Her friend was charged with drunken driving.

Police spokesperson Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said no case had been brought against Kloppers, and that her complaint was being investigated.

Kloppers' friends and her father Willem Kloppers were allegedly denied access to her when she later went into a diabetic coma.

She regained consciousness at the Eugene Marais Hospital.

Kloppers' lawyer Delia de Vries said the matter would be reported to the ICD if it was not dealt with properly.
