PRETORIA - Suspended Tshwane Metro Police Deputy Chief Ndumiso Jaca's lawyer on Wednesday argued that the state is prejudicing his client by not supplying information relevant for his defence.

He is applying to have charges against him quashed in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court.

Jaca's prosecution follows an Eyewitness News investigation which showed he was driving an unregistered vehicle with false number plates.

Lawyer Andre Steenkamp said the state failed to fully disclose further particulars of the case.

Steenkamp said Jaca will not receive a fair trial because the state is purposefully withholding information.

The lawyer further accused prosecutors of playing "hide and seek" and providing ridiculous answers to questions posed.

The state will present its arguments on Wednesday.
