JOHANNESBURG – Legal counsel for suspended national police commissioner Riah Phiyega says it has not received the report by the Claasen Board of Inquiry.

The City Press is reporting that the probe has concluded that Phiyega is unfit to hold office and should be dismissed.

President Jacob Zuma set up the board of inquiry last September after the Farlam Commission's report found her guilty of misconduct.

Phiyega's lawyers say they will not be commenting on reports that their client has been given the boot until the Claasen Board of Inquiry makes the findings available to them.

The public hearings into whether she is fit to hold office were concluded earlier this year.

The suspended national police commissioner, who chose not to testify during the hearings, faced questions about her role during the 2012 Marikana massacre.
