Police arrest man for corruption

2015-04-30 15:15

Members from crime intelligence and detectives from the Uitenhage police arrested a 33-year-old man for corruption, after a comprehensive investigation was conducted.

According to W/O Gerda Swart, the 33-year-old man, who is also a suspect in a burglary case that occurred in December 2014 in Uitenhage, attempted to purchase the case docket that implicates him.

“The suspect made an appointment with the investigating officer at a complex in Uitenhage for the transaction to take place. The suspect allegedly offered the officer a substantial amount of money for the docket to disappear,” said W/O Swart.

The 33-year-old man was arrested and last Thursday appeared in the Uitenhage Magistrate’s Court on a charge of corruption.

“This arrest should serve as a reminder to the public, that corruption is not an option and we will stop at nothing to root out corrupt activities in the Uitenhage station area,” said the Station Commander of SAPS Uitenhage, Brigadier Leonie Bentley
