Pretoria - The SA Security Force Union (Sasfu) on Wednesday called for Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to be arrested for violating a High Court order.

The minister was in breach of an order which ruled that the defence department's HIV/Aids policy discriminated against HIV-positive soldiers, Sasfu president Charles Jacobs told journalists at a briefing in Pretoria.

"In terms of that policy, HIV-positive soldiers cannot be promoted or deployed outside the country."

He said the court had ruled the department must reveal its HIV/Aids policy and present a new one within six months.

"The six months lapsed on November 16 last year. We are currently six months after the stipulated day."

He said they expected that by Thursday afternoon "legal processes" would be underway.
