Johannesburg - Acting Hawks boss Major General Benny Ntlemeza is deemed to be "motivated by the desire to take revenge on behalf of his ally" suspended intelligence head Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli, Beeld reported on Tuesday.

This is according to court papers submitted by suspended Gauteng Hawks boss Major General Shadrack Sibiya who argues his role in the 2011 Mdluli investigation was behind his suspension last month.

Ntlemeza suspended Sibiya pending an investigation into the illegal rendition of Zimbabweans in 2010.

Sibiya's lawyers asked the North Gauteng High Court on Friday to lift his suspension and declare it illegal, unconstitutional and invalid.

Proceedings were postponed to 16 February.

Sibiya also wants the appointment of his replacement Major General Elias Dlamini declared invalid.

"My alleged involvement in the 'so-called renditions' is a fabrication and I was suspended as a result of a plot to discredit and remove me."

Only the Cabinet can suspend him, he continues.

Sibiya has claimed since 2013 that there has been a campaign against him and suspended Hawks boss Anwa Dramat by police intelligence.

Judge Bill Prinsloo found on 23 January that Dramat's suspension was illegal and invalid and therefore Ntelemeza's appointment was invalid.
