CT cop gets 5 years in jail for fraud, defeating ends of justice
Ashley Munnik was convicted on ten counts of defeating the ends of justice and one count of fraud.
CAPE TOWN - A former police constable has been sentenced to five years behind bars for fraud and defeating the ends of justice.
Ashley Munnik heard his fate in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Court yesterday.
He was arrested early last year following a lengthy investigation.
The former South African Police Service (Saps) member was stationed at the Athlone Police Station where he worked as a detective.
In 2014, he was accused of corruption, following an investigation that found he had kept several packets of tik instead of handing them over as evidence.
Munnik was convicted on ten counts of defeating the ends of justice and one count of fraud.
He has been sentenced to five years for each count, which will run concurrently.
