PRETORIA - A second Crime Intelligence officer has implicated Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya in the so called Zimbabwean rendition operations, despite cellphone records placing the Major-General elsewhere at those times.

This emerged on Thursday during his disciplinary hearing which is being conducted in Pretoria.

Sibiya is accused of planning and executing the operation which led to the rendition of five Zimbabwean suspects in 2010.

Crime Intelligence Sergeant Petros Jawuke said he saw Sibiya seated in a car in Diepsloot during the second operation to arrest Zimbabwean suspects.

Earlier this week, Sergeant Bongani Yende testified that he too saw Sibiya seated in a car, but only during the first operation and not the second.

It also emerged in the evidence that a warrant officer Makwe, who was giving instructions to Jawuke and Yende, was former Crime Intelligence head Richard Mdluli's driver.

Sibiya has maintained that he is being implicated in the rendition operation for his role in the arrest of Mdluli in 2011.
