JOHANNESBURG - Suspended Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) head Robert McBride says there is widespread abuse in the police disciplinary processes in order to force specific people out of the system.

He was speaking earlier today on the Redi Tlhabi show, just a day after he and two co-accused appeared in court charged with fraud and defeating the ends of justice.

The three allegedly altered a report to exonerate senior Hawks officials implicated in the rendition of five Zimbabwean suspects in 2010.

McBride says there's no case against former Hawks bosses Anwa Dramat and Shadrack Sibiya when the evidence is properly studied.

"You have all these anomalies going on. It's like a kangaroo court. But it's not only in this rendition issue; it's with a number of other officials. They suspend them and abuse the suspension system."

He says the case of KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head Johan Booysen is a prime example.

"A lot of public resources have been used to keep Booysen out of his job. Even when the High Court says Booysen shouldn't be facing charges, and he wins his case, they appeal against it."

The Hawks' Crimes Against the State Unit is leading the investigation against McBride and his co-accused.
