Gauteng's Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya has avoided suspension following a labour court interdict.

Gauteng' s head of Hawks, Shadrack Sibiya, has averted suspension and is back at work this morning.

Eyewitness News reports that the province's head of the special investigating unit obtained a labour court interdict last night that has cleared him to report for duty.

Last week the Major-General was served a notice of suspension for his suspected role in the illegal rendition of four Zimbabweans in 2010 even though an unreleased report by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) had cleared his name.

Sibiya was asked to take a week off to come up with reasons as to why he should not be suspended but the court interdict countered the suspension, referring to it as illegal as the correct procedures were not followed.

Section head, Colonel Leslie Maluleke is expected to give reasons as to why he should not be suspended later today while suspended head, Anwa Dramat will be heading to court this week to fight his suspension following the Helen Suzman Foundation's (HSF) challenge to the lawfulness of Dramat's suspension by Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko.
