Pretoria - Tshwane metro police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca will approach the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria in a bid to have charges against him withdrawn, Eyewitness News reported on Monday.

The suspended senior policeman appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday, facing an assortment of charges, including fraud and driving a vehicle with unregistered, false number plates, and police lights.

Last year, Jaca's lawyer Andre Steenkamp filed an application requesting the lower court to "quash" the charges against his client.

That application was turned down by Magistrate Graham Travers.

The matter in the magistrate's court, will resume on 12 April.

Jaca was charged in March 2012, following an Eyewitness News report alleging that he was driving a BMW Z4 with false number plates and police lights.

He was also allegedly seen on a Harley Davidson motorbike with the same number plates - Balty GP.

The Tshwane metro announced in January last year that Jaca's three-month-long special leave, which began in October 2011, had been extended.
