Police watchdog IPID has demanded that the acting police commissioner stay away from any investigation involving its officers.

In a letter of demand sent to Lieutenant-General Khomotso Phahlane, IPID alleges that he used his position to illegally obtain documents related to their investigation against him, and to which a suspect is not supposed to have access.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate makes the following demands in the letter:

That Phahlane stay away from any investigation by the SAPS into IPID officials; that he ensure no police officers facing an IPID investigation become involved in any counter-investigation.
