Mcbride And Ipid Officials Want Public Protector's Report Overturned On 18 Grounds - Report

  |   Sanews

Former Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) head Robert McBride and other senior officials say Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's report on the police watchdog should be overturned on at least 18 grounds, according to Business Day.

The report concerns allegations of maladministration in IPID and against McBride himself.

McBride and seven other senior officials have applied for the report to be overturned and for an interim interdict against the remedial action against them, including disciplinary action.

According to Business Day, some have accused Mkhwebane of ignoring critical evidence IPID officials had given.

Speaking to News24 earlier, McBride stated that Mkhwebane failed to take into consideration that the majority of the report dealt with a complaint which was previously investigated by the public service commission and found to be unsubstantiated.

McBride accused Mkhwebane of eroding IPID's independence with the findings of the report. He said the report could disrupt investigations because it implicated IPID executives.
