The suspects in this matter were arrested, on 21 September 2011 and on 4 October 2011, respectively. The case was subsequently withdrawn against the accused, on 4 December 2011, based on a decision by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

Based on a decision by the Supreme Court of Appeal, the matter was re-enrolled on the court roll at the Serious Commercial Crimes Court, Pretoria, on 1 April 2015. However, it was struck from the roll, on 6 July 2015, due to the fact that the documentation, which the State would be relying upon, was not yet declassified by the South African Police Service (SAPS).

This matter cannot proceed as the SAPS has not yet declassified the documentation, which was used in the commission of the alleged crimes.

The investigation includes the allegations made by Major General M Hankel, in the report to the Inspector General of Intelligence.

On 17 May 2017, the then Acting National Commissioner of the SAPS, Lieutenant General Phahlane, informed the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP),

Has the SA Police Service provided any VIP protection to a certain person (name furnished) at any point after he ceased to be a member of Cabinet; if so, (a) from which date(s) to which date(s) and (b) what are the reasons?

Reply:

(a) Yes, from 1 April 2018 to 16 July 2018.
(b) The South African Police Service (SAPS), was informed by the former member of Cabinet, that an application for an extension of the Very Important Person (VIP) protection was submitted to the Minister of Police. Therefore, protection was provided, whilst awaiting the outcome of the decision by the Minister of Police.

The Ministerial handbook, Chapter 9 "relinquishing of office", reads as follows:

"In exceptional cases, security protection may be afforded to former members who left their official residences, for as long as the Minister of Safety and Security may deem this necessary''.

During the period, 1 April 2018 to 16 July 2018, the department commissioned a threat assessment. The feedback or outcome was that there was no threat and the SAPS took a decision to withdraw the protection from the former Minister of Police, on 16 July 2018.

(2) whether he has found that the delay is intentional; if not, why has there been a time delay of three years; if so, (a) what steps will his department take to speed up the investigations and (b) what consequences will the officials who are not dealing with the cases promptly suffer?

Reply:

(1)(a) The two case dockets, Worcester, CAS 259/10/2015 and 261/10/2015, were submitted to the Senior Public Prosecutor (SPP), on several occasions and returned with guidance on further investigations to be conducted. The last date that the case dockets were returned, was on 5 September 2018 and the Investigating Officer is busy dealing with the instructions, which were issued by the SPP.

(1)(b) The Ombudsman on Policing, in the Western Cape, reports to the Provincial Government and not to the South African Police Service (SAPS). The SAPS can, therefore, not respond to this part of the question.

(1 )(c) The complexity of these cases differ from one to the other and therefore, a standard acceptable time frame cannot be determined.

(2) It has been found that the delay was not intentional. The case was no//e prosequi (refused to prosecute) and was only re-opened by the SAPS, after the complainant approached the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA),to seek clarity.

(2)(a) Not applicable.

  • The cases of Tembisa South was

incorrectly reported as the police

station was only opened in 2014.

 

NB. Due to typing error, it was reported in the response to question 1406, that 78

dockets were lost at Tembisa South. Therefore, there was no loss of dockets in 2013, since the station did not exist in 2013. It should further be noted that there was no loss of dockets or stolen dockets reported at Tembisa South since 2014 up to date.

2. Newcastle, CAS 607/12/2016, was opened for the case dockets, which were stolen from a vehicle. The dockets were in a laptop bag, inside the vehicle. A suspect was found guilty and sentenced to three years imprisonment. Hlabisa, CAS 83/05/2018, was opened for the dockets that went missing from court. The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), declined to prosecute.

The rest was incorrectly reported in the first reply to the question. The investigating officer’s office was broken in to and his laptop and the mentioned attempted murder docket were stolen during the housebreaking. The accused in the attempted murder case was found guilty and was convicted after the docket was reconstructed by the investigating officer.

3. The two South African Police Service (SAPS) officials were charged in two different incidents, namely the 13 dockets that were lost at Botshabelo, in 2017, as well as the five dockets that were lost by the FCS Park Road, in 2015. In the Botshabelo case, the accused was found not guilty. The accused in the FCS Park Road case, pleaded guilty. The accused resigned from the SAPS, on 14 September 2015.

One member made a statement during the departmental trial, in Madadeni. A case was opened by the Public Protector, but the NPA declined to prosecute. The member in Madadeni was found guilty in the departmental case and fined R500,00. The other member is no longer employed by the SAPS.

The rest was incorrectly reported in the first reply to the question. The member was not charged, because the docket got lost at the Pretoria North Magistrates Court.

4. The Minister will determine if he should make a statement on this matter.
