CAPE TOWN - Chairperson for Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Police Annelize van Wyk says Hawks boss Anwa Dramat has been doing an exemplary job and she's disappointed by reports to the contrary.

The Sunday Times at the weekend reported it received documents alleging the Hawks boss facilitated the illegal deportation of Zimbabweans who were arrested in South Africa and sent back to their home country to be tortured and killed.

It's also been reported that Dramat will be interrogated over the claims by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) this week.

"The fact of the matter is that Dramat executed his duties with distinction, as far as we know. He took over at a very difficult time when the Scorpions and the Hawks where brought into one organisation and he managed that," says Van Wyk.
