A high-ranking Police officer has been arrested during a pre-dawn raid at her house this morning.
She is the 13th accused expected to appear before the Palm Ridge Magistrates court on the charges of corruption, fraud, theft and money laundering.
Her arrest and appearance relate to the supply of emergency warning equipment for the South African Police services in 2017.
The contract price and exposure to the Police fiscus was R191million. However, R65 million was paid to the service provider, Instrumentation for Traffic Law enforcement (Pty) Ltd. The payment of R22 million was stopped at the advanced stage of the Investigating Directorates probe into the matter.
She is added to the other accused that appeared in court earlier this year. There are nine police officers in this case.
