SCA to hear Hawks rendition case
Acting Hawks boss Berning Ntlemeza petitioned the SCA directly after he was denied leave to appeal.
The North Gauteng High Court in March dismissed Ntlemeza's application for leave to appeal after ruling that Sibiya's suspension was unlawful and invalid.
Ntlemeza however petitioned the Bloemfontein court directly.
The acting Hawks boss will once again argue Sibiya should be suspended because of the serious allegations he faced regarding the rendition of Zimbabwean suspects in 2010.
Sibiya as well as former Hawks boss Anwa Dramat are accused of orchestrating the rendition of five people.
Ntlemeza relied on the damning first Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) report which implicated Sibiya and Dramat in the crime.
But Judge Elias Matojane found that Ntlemeza lacked integrity, lied under oath and showed disregard for the law.
While Dramat resigned in April, Sibiya has put up a strong fight to return to work.
He maintains police have no case against him.
