Cape Town - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate has told MPs that acting national police commissioner General Khomotso Phahlane should be suspended to prevent him interfering in IPID probes.

IPID directors, including head Robert McBride, presented to a police briefing in Parliament on Tuesday about alleged interference by Phahlane and a North West police investigating team in internal probes.

Phahlane was also present for the police portfolio committee meeting.
