Johannesburg - A Kimberley police officer accused of corruption was released on bail by the Kimberley Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, the Hawks said.

Colonel Priscilla Naidu said the warrant officer was granted R1 000 bail and was expected back in court on 29 August.

"It is alleged that the warrant officer offered to make an illegal firearm docket disappear at a price," Naidu said.

The individual under investigation was allegedly instructed by the officer to make a deposit of R300 at a local retail store, where the officer could withdraw the money.

"The suspect met with the warrant officer again on 27 July, where another R300 was exchanged and we then arrested him."

An internal police probe was also being conducted, Naidu said.

    Please guys don't bungle this case, that warrant officer must be sentenced to more than 15years imprisonment without option of being given a parole. In the ranks of SAPS corruption mustn't be tolerated.
