Johannesburg - The SA Policing Union (Sapu) will apply for a court order to stop the proposed transfer of 11 police officers, it said on Wednesday.

"We have so far instructed our legal team to prepare documents," Sapu General Secretary Oscar Skommere said in a statement.

He urged the SA Police Service (SAPS) to reverse its decision to transfer the 11 lieutenant-colonels from OR Tambo International Airport to the provincial head office in Parktown, Johannesburg.

"It is not a coincidence that these officers, who are members of the protection security services, have been unilaterally transferred after registering a grievance against the SAPS in OR Tambo International," Skommere said.

He accused the police of violating transfer policy, and said it was victimising and silencing the officers into submission.

"We would like to send a stern warning to SAPS management that we cannot allow them to victimise members. We know the rules and regulations governing the transfer policy in the police."
