2012-09-28 21:06

Durban - A woman was arrested on Friday for allegedly bribing a detective with R30 000 to steal a murder docket in Ngonyameni, south of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Captain Thulani Zwane said the 28-year-old woman approached a detective from KwaMakhutha on Thursday and asked him to steal a murder docket in which her brother was implicated.

The two set up an appointment for 09:00 on Friday.

The detective arrested the woman after she handed him the money.

The docket contained information on the shooting and killing of a man last December.

Three men stole R70 000 from his house. Zwane said police had only arrested two suspects in the case.

The woman would be charged with attempting to bribe a police officer.

      It's not a question of intelligence. It's a simple matter of integrity a nd doing what you're paid for.

    Just imagine if the law got back the R675 billion lost to corruption? Less Lamborghinis and more service delivery. What a win.

    i dnt understand the charge is attempted bribery but she already handed the money over to the scarce honest cop thats bribery red handed...

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-09-29 06:41

      Offering a bribe is bribery.

    This prick's timing was completetly wrong hence she fell to the police's detective's trap.Honestly speaking,the likelihood for a police man or any law-enforcement officer accept a bribe on PAYDAY is very slim.Let the prick rot in jail anyway

    Bravo!!! If all in the SAPS would follow your outstanding example the world would be a much better place to leave in, that wil spell the eradication of missing dockets, therefore criminals will face the music, there would be no delay in serving criminal justice, victims will be smiling all the way, trust in the criminal justice will resurrect? Think about it, picture a SA where all officials perform their duties to the best of their abilities, do the right thing like you Sir, where teachers teach the children, preachers preach the Word, doctors treat the patients well, no stealing, nill corruption, ward councilors do what they were appointed to do for their wards, public officials add accountability in the baskets of their vocabulary. This is possible and it begins with ME and YOU!!!
