Johannesburg - New top cop Mangwashi Phiyega said she will comment on the investigation into suspended crime intelligence head lieutenant-general Richard Mdludli after she has read the files on him, City Press reported on Sunday.

"I will be dealing with it."

Phiyega said documents seen in newspapers were "adulterated".

"Now that I'm here, they will show me the real files and maybe when you talk to me 12 months down the line, I will be able to say I did see the real files and what we were seeing wasn't the real thing," she told the publication.

Phiyega would also reach out to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, the unit that investigates cases of police misconduct.

"No doctor can doctor herself. It's critical and important to have the directorate to police us and to regulate us. I really appreciate its existence."

Mdluli remains suspended from the police service pending various court actions.

Freedom Under Law has filed an application to have criminal charges - ranging from murder to corruption - reinstated against Mdluli.

Next month, Mdluli also faces a disciplinary hearing by the SA Police Service.

Phiyega was appointed to her position by President Jacob Zuma this week.
