NCP passes an amendment bill
29 August 2012
The National Council of Provinces yesterday passed an amendment bill to restructure the Hawks that they say is in line with the Constitutional Court's Glenister ruling.
The bill was approved in the National Assembly in May with the DA and Freedom Front Plus opposing, and now goes to President Jacob Zuma to sign into law.
Businessman Hugh Glenister has been fighting against the bill being passed for months.
He says the Hawks position within the SAPS does not provide the anti-corruption unit with enough independence from police interference.
