Johannesburg - No evidence has been found of a conspiracy by senior policemen against sidelined crime intelligence boss Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli, the police ministry said on Thursday.

"The task team has found no evidence suggesting that... senior police officials were involved in any kind of conspiracy," said ministerial spokesperson Zweli Minisi.

Mdluli had claimed that axed police chief Bheki Cele, Hawks commander Lieutenant General Anwa Dramat, operational services head Lieutenant General Godfrey Lebeya, and Gauteng police chief Lieutenant General Mzwandile Petros had ganged up against him.

"The allegations were so serious as they further suggested the meddling of policing functions in politics," said Mnisi.

He said Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa established a task team to investigate the claims on May 11.

Mdluli is currently not allowed to work as a police officer following an order by the North Gauteng High Court, to allow for a review of his suspension and reinstatement and of the withdrawal of criminal charges against him.
