Hawks arrest Alex policeman

2012-12-02 19:05

Johannesburg - An Alexandra policeman has been arrested for corruption, a spokesperson for the Hawks says.

Spokesperson Paul Ramaloko said on Sunday that the 42-year-old warrant officer was arrested and R10 000 seized.

The warrant officer falsely told a motor mechanic he was being investigated for motor vehicle theft and house robbery and solicited a R10 000 bribe to destroy the dockets, he said.

"He was apprehended immediately and the money was confiscated," said Ramaloko.

The policeman was being held at the Roodepoort police station and would appear in the Wynburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

      Since we can't do that in this country, do the next best thing: Name him, shame him and send him to prison where he belongs. For a good, long time.

      mbuti,,it's you not u!

      If he was falsely accused of motor vehicle theft, why would he then pay over a bribe of R10 000 to "destroy the docket" if he was innocent?

      @ JaysonPaul I just had a bit finger trouble which is natural when you are a very fast typist the keyboard sometimes fail me, but the guy is an idiot and he missed the main point in the matter very conveniently. I do speak four languages and I think he does even know how to speak is own language. Thanks for the support any way.

    Let that policeman without any waste of time be sentenced for life because he was the one to fight crime and not to protect criminals and also be part of them by doing criminal activities, he knows very well that what he did was wrong so he should then remain behind bars he is not wanted in the police force of this country they are dangerous to the society.

      Happy Phaleng - 2012-12-03 06:51

      hawks i just dont like them sometimes cos thy always report on small cases of a cop steeling 5cents while we know weve got people who do corruption by passion nd as part of their work! so your double standard work style must come to an end and make sure you arrest big boys in corruption

  • andre.vandeventer.16 - 2012-12-02 20:05

    Cops should be treated more severely and given no bail!

  • jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-12-02 20:26

    People who work for hawks cover a variety of disciplines!Even a Chartered Accountant is welcome within the cops!

      carryn.whittaker - 2012-12-02 20:48

      Apparently so are charlatans and fraudsters

  • carryn.whittaker - 2012-12-02 20:45

    This is a headline only because corruption is not being addressed appropriately. With the amount of corruption in this country its a f@erking disgrace that the arrest rate is so low that drivel like this is newsworthy. Not taking issue with the press as they can only report on what happens. But Hawks, seriously chaps, get out there and find something a little more rewarding for the taxpayer to celebrate.

    This a warrant officer leading by example, which school was he trained at to become a "warrant" officer? Surely their tutors are putting ideas into the pupils heads on "get rich quick schemes". As most of these cops are too thick to think of these schemes.

  • flynn.govender - 2012-12-03 10:19

    There are so many corrupt police officers in SA, I just hope this policeman does not get this case thrown out of court. In jail, the prisoners do not like ex-police officers
