PRETORIA - Suspended Tshwane deputy metro police chief Ndumiso Jaca will on Monday hear whether the state will continue prosecuting him.

Jaca is attempting to have the 11 charges against him, including fraud, quashed.

The prosecution is the result of an Eyewitness News exposé which showed he was driving an unlicenced vehicle fitted with false number plates.

He was charged in March, after claims that his BMW Z4 was fitted with false number plates and police lights.

His motorbike was also seen with the same number plates - Balty GP.

Jaca's lawyer, Andre Steenkamp, has previously argued that his client has been prejudiced by the state's reluctance to hand over information related to his alleged crime.

The Pretoria Magistrate's Court ordered the state to supply the information in May.

It was claimed the prosecution team did not hand over sufficient information to enable Jaca to adequately defend himself.

The state however claims otherwise.

Eyewitness News understands that Magistrate Graham Travers may amend the charges slightly, and proceed with the prosecution.

Jaca has been on suspension for more than a year.
