PRETORIA - The inquiry into Oupa Ramogibe’s 1999 murder will go ahead, a Boksburg Magistrate ruled on Monday.
Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli and three other policemen were arrested and charged with the crime in 2011.
In February, charges were withdrawn.
Magistrate Jurg Viviers took into account the rights of Ramogibe’s family when setting a date for the inquiry.
The hearing will take place in September.
Viviers said the focus was unfairly placed on the rights of Mdluli and his three co-accused.
The magistrate said he also needed to consider the rights of 30 witnesses testifying in the case.
Speaking to Eyewitness News, Freedom Under Law (Ful)’s Johann Kriegler said they are taking legal advice on whether the decision to drop charges against Mdluli should be reviewed.
