The IFP calls for the urgent suspension of
police officers involved in the death of a taxi driver in
Daveyton, who was dragged behind a police vehicle for
approximately 500 metres.
IFP Spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu
MP said, "It is unconscionable that law enforcement officers are
involved in criminal activities, not only by encouraging acts of
mob justice, but also by giving members of the public cause to
further distrust the police."
Ndlovu also stated that, "The IPID should
conclude their investigation into this incident urgently and
ensure that those officers who carried out this act are
criminally charged. Any officer involved should be suspended
The IFP calls upon the Minister of Police and
the National Police Commissioner to also urgently intervene by
conducting their own internal investigation into this matter.
