Pretoria - The High Court in Pretoria will on Monday rule on the Helen Suzman Foundation's application for an enforcement order on the court's ruling regarding the suspension of Hawks head Anwa Dramat.

The HSF presented its submissions on the application to Judge Bill Prinsloo on Friday.

The foundation wants Dramat to be able to return to work.

Dramat was set to return to work last Friday, after Prinsloo ruled his suspension by Police Minister Nathi Nhleko was unlawful and invalid.

Prinsloo also ruled that Nhleko's decision to appoint Major General Berning Ntlemeza as acting national Hawks head was unlawful and invalid.

Nhleko was appealing the ruling.

The police ministry said Dramat was not allowed to return to work until the appeal process had been completed.

Dramat was suspended on 23 December, pending a probe into his alleged involvement in the illegal rendition of four Zimbabweans in November 2010.

The court would also hear the minister's application for leave to appeal on Monday.
