The corruption case involving the former South African Police Service (SAPS) Crime Intelligence Head, Richard Mdluli, former Supply Chain Manager, Heine Barnard and former Chief Financial Officer of State Security Agency, Solomon Lazarus is postponed to 11 May 2022. This case is in connection with the allegation of abusing the secret services slush fund.

This includes allegations of payment from the fund for private trips to China and Singapore, private use of witness protection houses, conversion of this property for personal use and the leasing out of his private residence to the state in order to pay Mdluli’s bond amongst others.”

Investigating Directorate spokesperson Sindisiwe Twala said the postponement is due to Mdluli not having filled his responses to the section 342A application called by the state on grounds of unreasonable delay.

“An unreasonable delay application was brought about by Mdluli planning to bring a review application to his former employer(SAPS) after he was denied legal funding.”
