Cape Town - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said on Tuesday her office will not be investigating Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli.
Madonsela said findings in the preliminary investigation made her office decide not to proceed with a full scale investigation.
The case was handed over to the inspector general of intelligence, Faith Radebe, because she was already busy with the investigation, she said.
"[The inspector general] said she was at an advanced stage [of the investigation]," Madonsela told journalists in Cape Town.
"She said even though Mdluli was accused of various criminal implications, the case was not brought before her office for criminality, but for maladministration.
"The criminality of the case has already been sorted out by the NPA," said Madonsela.
The inspector general of intelligence will only be looking at maladministration allegations.
"I am satitisfied the inspectior general has the jurisdiction to do this," she said.
