Sex-tape warder dismissed

2011-08-31 07:33

The Department of Correctional Services officer implicated in a sex video scandal has been served with an official notice of dismissal.

This followed an internal disciplinary hearing yesterday, the department said.

The officer was charged with bringing the department into disrepute by contravening its code of conduct and breaching internal security measures.

The sex video of the officer and a police reservist based at the Kagiso Police Station was widely circulated.

At the time, the woman was unaware that their sexcapade was being filmed by the officer.

The incident took place at the Leratong Hospital while the two were guarding a high-risk inmate, and resulted in the dismissal of the police reservist.

The prison warder, who has since been hospitalised for depression, tried to tender his resignation before the disciplinary hearing, but was unsuccessful.

He was not present at the hearing and opted to send a sick note instead, according to the department.
