Krejcir Colluders Must Be Arrested

26 November 2013    

 

The IFP calls for the immediate arrest of those associated with fugitive Radovan Krejcir, following media reports that the head of the Germiston organised crime unit, Colonel Francois Steyn, took a R408 000 loan from a company associated with the Czech businessman.

 

IFP spokesperson on Police, MP Velaphi Ndlovu said "Our country is becoming a criminal haven because of foreigners who abuse the privilege of gaining access to the country. Some even end up working with criminals in the security section. The SAPS continues to suffer a great deal of damage to its reputation through the actions of corrupt officials"

 

SAPS members took an oath to preserve and protect the country, but instead they are abusing their positions and privileges to break the law.

 

He added that "We want to know what will happen to those who are corrupt. They must be identified, investigated, face criminal charges and prosecuted for their behaviour. A foundation of 'correct' policing and an ethos of discipline, integrity and accountability must be inculcated into the force if its image and credibility are ever to be restored"

 

The IFP calls on the National Police Commissioner to work closely with the Justice Department and Public Service Commission in ensuring that all corrupt police officers are named, shamed and prosecuted.
