Johannesburg - Suspended Tshwane metro deputy police chief Ndumiso Jaca will return to the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Jaca faces 11 charges including fraud and driving a vehicle with unregistered, false number plates, and police lights.

At his last appearance on October 10, Jaca's lawyer Andre Steenkamp, told the court he had insufficient information relating to fraud and other charges against his client.

This was not rectified by a compelling order issued by magistrate Graham Travers in May for the information to be supplied.

Steenkamp said the State only added "void and nonsensical information". "If the trial proceeds on the basis of the insufficient information that we have, the accused suffers prejudice," he said. In May, the magistrate ordered the State to reveal further information relating to the charges against the beleaguered Tshwane metro police boss.

At the time, prosecutor Heinrich Scholtz said the request for further particulars by the defence was a move "to entrap the prosecution into a certain line of argument".

The Tshwane metro announced in January that Jaca's three-month-long special leave, which began in October, had been extended.
