CT detectives in court for 'selling docket'
The two detectives were nabbed by the Hawks after allegedly selling a case docket for R40,000
CAPE TOWN - Two police detectives are expected to appear in the Mitchells Plain Magistrates Court today after they were caught for allegedly selling a case docket for R40,000.
It's been reported the men are stationed in the Mitchells Plain Cluster.
The two detectives, aged 30 and 42, were nabbed by the Hawks on Monday on charges of corruption.
The arrests happened just hours after a deal took place in the area.
Western Cape Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer has condemned the corruption and says officials won't hesitate to take action against their own.
"The members were arrested on Monday after a thorough investigation and from us as police management we are quite disappointed when we see police get involved in criminal activities."
Lamoer says investigations into the case are ongoing.
