PRETORIA - Suspended Tshwane metro police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca's fraud case was postponed in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The matter was delayed in order to allow time for prosecutors to provide defence lawyers with certain documents.

Jaca's criminal case follows an Eyewitness News investigation which revealed he was driving an unlicenced and unregistered vehicle, fitted with false number plates.

Lawyer Andre Steenkamp told the court that prosecutors failed to provide documents requested during Jaca's last appearance.

Magistrate Graham Travers reviewed all of the questions, before ordering the state to answer a number of them.

However, the magistrate found that some questions had no relevance to the case.

Steenkamp also asked for access to exhibit material and complained that some documents provided to him were illegible.

Prosecutors will hand over the documents when Jaca returns to dock next week Tuesday.
