2014-11-07 12:21

Nine policemen from Parow, in Cape Town, and a former employee of the police station were arrested on corruption charges early this morning.

“The officials: one sergeant, eight constables, and one former employee, will be charged with corruption following information that they took bribes from suspects and stole exhibits,” said Western Cape Police Captain FC van Wyk.

They were arrested by the provincial anticorruption unit.

Western Cape provincial commissioner Lieutenant-General Arno Lamoer welcomed the arrests.

“This will send out a strong message to all police officials that bad elements within the service will not be tolerated,” he said.

“We wish to assure the community of Parow that service delivery will not be compromised by these arrests.

“Contingency measures have been put in place to ensure that all services are rendered at the police station,” he said.
