First on EWN: Complainant in Phiyega case claims he’s being victimised
The case related to Phiyega allegedly tipping off Arno Lamoer that he was the subject of a criminal probe.
PRETORIA - Eyewitness News can reveal that the complainant in the case against suspended National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega alleges he's being victimised and being subjected to unfair treatment.
The details are contained in a docket, which was opened at the Sunnyside Police Station in Pretoria two weeks ago.
It's understood the case relates to Phiyega allegedly tipping off former Western Cape Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer that he was the subject of a criminal investigation.
EWN has established that the complainant is former Crime Intelligence agent Dominic Ntokozo Mjiyako, who resigned from the unit late last year and is currently a government legal advisor.
In the case he opened at the the Sunnyside Police Station, he accuses Phiyega of defeating the ends of justice at a meeting which took place at the Sheraton Hotel in October, 2013.
However, no further details are available.
During this period in 2013, it first emerged that the national commissioner had allegedly tipped off Lamoer.
Mjiyako's wife Norma has submitted a supporting affidavit stating that her husband is being victimised by elements within the police.
She says in the affidavit that she reported this unfair treatment to Phiyega, the current acting commissioner Khomotso Phahlane and Police Minister Nathi Nhleko.
The Mjiyako couple has declined to comment, saying the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) is representing them.
A union representative told EWN they are not commenting on the case.
The police have also declined to comment.
