Johannesburg - Gauteng Hawks head Major General Shadrack Sibiya's lawyer on Wednesday could not confirm a report that the notice to suspend Sibiya had been withdrawn.

"Well, I've not received any communication from the State Attorney's office. By the close of business yesterday [Tuesday], I did not receive any communication," Victor Nkhwashu told Sapa.

Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi could not immediately be reached for comment.

Eyewitness News reported that it had learnt that Sibiya's suspension notice had been withdrawn.

Sibiya was due to head to the Labour Court on Wednesday to challenge the suspension notice from the Hawks, which was served last Monday.

Nkhwashu was recently quoted in The Star stating they were hoping to get details of the suspension.

"He [Sibiya] hopes to be supplied with the particulars we've asked for so that he can respond to the notice of suspension," he said.

"We're not saying he shouldn't be suspended, we're just saying processes must be followed for the suspension to be fair."

Sibaya was given a week to give reasons why he should not be suspended.

The charge relates to Sibiya's alleged involvement in facilitating the illegal rendition of Zimbabweans.

Senior Hawks official Colonel Leslie Maluleke was also reportedly served with a notice of suspension last week, while on 23 December Hawks boss Anwa Dramat was suspended also over his alleged involvement in the November 2010 renditions.
