Johannesburg - Forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan on Friday confirmed that he had laid a complaint against national police commissioner Riah Phiyega

The complaint against Phiyega relates to a grievance O'Sullivan had submitted to her about divisional commissioner for detective services, Lieutenant-General Vinesh Moonoo

"I gave her a written complaint about Moonoo and she elected to forward it to him," O'Sullivan said. 

It was not immediately clear what O'Sullivan's complaint about Moonoo was about. 

News24 tried to question O'Sullivan on when he had made the complaints against both Moonoo and Phiyega.

He said he was in a meeting and could not answer questions. 

Phiyega's spokesperson, Lieutenant-General Solomon Makgale could not be reached for comment.

Last month, the police raided O'Sullivan's house in Sandown, Johannesburg, following allegations of fraud and contravention of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act.

O'Sullivan has been accused of circulating a fraudulent bank statement he says belonged to South African Airways chairperson Dudu Myeni.

The raid was an attempt to identify the creator of the bank statement which the investigating team had confirmed was a forgery.

O'Sullivan took the matter to the High Court in Johannesburg in an attempt to prevent the police from having access to his computers, cellphones and documents. 

The court ruled that the seized items be returned to him and copies of whatever was downloaded be handed over to the court registrar.
