Pretoria - Tshwane metro police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca has filed documents seeking a review application in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

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

His lawyer Andre Steenkamp asked for a provisional postponement to allow for the ongoing process of submitting documents and records to the superior court.

Last year Steenkamp filed an application asking the lower court to quash the charges against his client.

Magistrate Graham Travers turned that application down.

In March, Steenkamp indicated Jaca would approach the high court in a bid to have the charges withdrawn.

Travers postponed the matter in the magistrate's court to 9 July.

Jaca was charged in March 2012, following an Eyewitness News report alleging 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.
