The Civilian Secretariat for the Police Service invites you to comment on the Independent Police Investigative Directorate Amendment Draft Bill.

The Bill seeks to amend the Independent Police Investigative Directorate Act, 2011, so as to:
▪ amend and insert certain definitions;
▪ provide that the Directorate must be impartial and must exercise its powers and functions without fear, favour, prejudice, or undue influence in order to give effect to the judgment of the Constitutional Court in the case of McBride v Minister of Police and Another;
▪ provide for a more open and transparent process for the appointment of the Executive Director of the Directorate;
▪ amend other provisions of the Act so as to ensure that the Directorate executes its mandate effectively and efficiently; and to provide for matters connected therewith.
