sapsTimeslive reports that Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Police has condemned the participation of senior police officers in criminal activities and said the fight against crime could only be won if led by a credible and corruption-free SA Police Service (SAPS).  

On Friday, the committee noted that over the week past several current senior and former senior SAPS officials had been subjected to court processes.  Some had pleaded guilty on corruption-related charges‚ others were sentenced to long prison terms while others had to still offer their pleas in the related court cases.  The committee’s chairperson‚ Francois Beukman‚ said senior officers must lead by example in the fight against crime and condemned any act of criminality by SAPS members‚ more so those committed by senior SAPS officials.  Beukman said that ongoing lifestyle audits of senior officers‚ strict implementation of the NDP’s recommendations on recruitment and promotions‚ and concerted operations by IPID in relation to systemic corruption in the SAPS were essential in dealing with criminal conduct by police officers.
