A parliamentary committee has taken the Independent Complaints Directorate to task for the speed with which the police watchdog body investigated the killing of Ficksburg activist Andries Tatane.
The committee says many families in similar cases had been waiting for long periods without their cases being finalised.
Police are accused of killing Tatane during a protest march.
Committee chairperson Cindy Chikunga questioned whether pressure from the media came into play in the Tatane case.
