TSHWANE - Prosecutors on Tuesday responded to a request for more details about the charges against suspended Tshwane metro police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca.

He appeared briefly in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

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

In court on Tuesday, defence lawyer Andre Steenkamp was allowed to view the docket which contains evidence against his client.

A substantial amount of the evidence was uncovered by Eyewitness News , including photographs of his BMW coupe and a Harley Davidson bearing the same number plates.

The state also handed over documents requested by the defence team.

Magistrate Graeme Travers postponed the matter for a month to allow Steenkamp time to take further instructions from Jaca.
