PRETORIA - The case against suspended Tshwane Metro Police Deputy Chief Ndumiso Jaca was on Wednesday postponed yet again in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court.

Jaca faces a range of charges including fraud and several traffic offences.

His prosecution was the result of an Eyewitness News investigation which established he was driving an unregistered vehicle fitted with false number plates.

Jaca filed an application in the North Gauteng High Court to review the Pretoria Magistrate's Court's decision not to strike his case off the roll. He argued the prosecuting team did not fully disclose information to his defence team which meant his case was prejudiced.

Magistrate Graham Travers dismissed the claim and said he was ready to proceed with the trial. The matter was postponed until July.

Jaca has been on paid suspension for more than a year.

Earlier this year Jaca returned to court after failing to have the charges against him dropped.
