THE Northern Cape Hawks’ provincial head, Maj. Gen. K.D. Galawe, welcomed the Port Nolloth regional court’s ruling last Thursday against a former police constable, Danzel Romano Engelbrecht.

“His conviction sends a very strong message to all corrupt police officials and it should serve as deterrent to others,” said Galawe.

The 27-year-old former police constable was found guilty after being convicted of two counts of corruption and illegal possession of ammunition and dagga by the regional court in Port Nolloth.

According to Lt Philani Nkwalase, Engelbrecht presented false documents to the director of a diamond company, which contained fictitious police investigation results implicating the company and its workers in foul play.
