Johannesburg - Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko will study a high court judgment dismissing an application by acting Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza and the judge's comments that he lacked integrity and honour.

"The minister is still going to familiarise himself with the judgment and then he'll have something to say about the judgment," said his spokesperson Musa Zondi on Tuesday.

Ntlemeza sought leave to appeal the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria's ruling which overturned the suspension of Gauteng Hawks head Shadrack Sibiya.

"The third respondent [Ntlemeza] elected to withhold from the court the IPID [Independent Police Investigative Directorate] report and the docket that was in his possession, to enable the court to make a proper assessment of the strength or otherwise of the case against the applicant [Sibiya]," said Judge Elias Matojane on Monday.

"I am of the view that the conduct of the third respondent shows that he is biased and dishonest. To show that the third respondent is biased, lacks integrity and honour, he made false statements under oath."
