Phiyega silent on 'Lamoer scandal'
Phiyega is accused of informing Arno Lamoer on three occasions that he was under investigation.
CAPE TOWN - National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega's office is keeping mum on a scandal involving her.
This comes as the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) concluded its investigation into allegations the commissioner informed Western Cape Police Chief Arno Lamoer about a probe into his conduct.
Phiyega's office has declined to comment on the IPID probe and the scandal.
The police watch-dog wrapped up its investigation last month and has handed over its findings to the National Director of Public Prosecutions.
The IPID's Moses Dlamini says, "We've sent our report to the NDPP for a decision. That decision is outstanding."
Phiyega has been accused of informing Lamoer on three occasions that he was under investigation.
Lamoer was allegedly linked to a controversial Cape Town businessman, who is said to have links to the criminal underworld.
Phiyega has denied the claims.
