The IFP is dismayed that the two police
officers who stripped and assaulted a man in Cape Town are now
out on bail.
IFP spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu
MP said, “Those two police officers should have not been granted
bail after they were caught assaulting a man on Saturday. They
did not only strip him of his clothes, they also stripped him
off his dignity.”
“These police officers continue to assault
people because they know they will not be arrested even though
they are caught on camera. This happened in the Andries Tatane
case now it is happening again in this case.”
The IFP urges the minister of police to apply
a zero tolerance approach on police brutality.
Ndlovu added, “These police officers should
not be above the law. The minister must ensure that thugs are
not running the police services.”
