Johannesburg - The Hawks on Tuesday night confirmed the suspension of its Gauteng head Major General  Shadrack Sibiya.

"I can confirm that he has been suspended, unfortunately we can't go into the details because it is an internal matter," spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

"But I can confirm that he was suspended earlier today (Tuesday) with full pay."

Mulaudzi said the suspension would last as long as the investigation took and said the Hawks would ensure all processes were followed.

"The investigation will not be compromised. We will ensure that all the processes are followed without prejudicing anyone."

Sibiya's lawyer Victor Nkhwashu earlier confirmed that he received his suspension notice around 15:30.

On Tuesday night, Nkhwashu said he had been unable to meet Sibiya to discuss the matter and receive instructions.

"I was unable to meet with him this evening. The meeting will take place tomorrow [Wednesday]," he said shortly after 21:00.

Nkhwashu confirmed the suspension was related to Sibiya's alleged involvement in facilitating the illegal rendition of Zimbabweans in November 2010.
