Attempt to bribe Hawks boss backfires
25 September 2011
A Durban businessman is expected to appear in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court tomorrow for allegedly trying to bribe the head of the Hawks in KwaZulu-Natal.
Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela has confirmed that the suspect, named by some sources as Thoshan Panday, is alleged to have tried to pay Johan Booysen two-million-Rands to obtain a sensitive document linked to a corruption investigation.
The police’s Colonel Navin Madhoe was arrested last week in connection with a suitcase containing over one-point-three-million-Rands which was dropped off into Booysen's car.
A further 700-thousand-Rand was expected to be paid later.
