Hendricks, Mr MGE to ask the Minister of Police

(1) Whether, in light of calls by the Portfolio Committee on Police for investigations into missing firearms at a police station in Johannesburg and the fact that this is not an isolated case, seeing that firearms stolen from police depots have landed in the hands of gangsters, the National Commissioner of Police will prioritise the investigation into the stolen firearms which contribute greatly to violent killings on the Cape Flats; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) Whether an intelligence officer will be deployed to the police depots identified as hotspots for missing firearms; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details; (3) What turnaround strategy is there to encourage the public to report stolen firearms, as members of a the public are often too afraid to report corruption at a police station; (4) Whether hi Office will refer cases of police officials who were previously accused of being involved in missing firearms for further investigation; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
