Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa today announced that a comprehensive forensic investigation will be conducted within the South African Police Service Service Termination environment.

Ministry Spokesperson Zweli Mnisi said this section is responsible for processing and payment of service termination benefits of former employees of the SAPS, those employed under the SAPS Act as well as the Public Service Act.  The section has a mandate to ensure that such payments are processed timeously, efficiently and in most instances, deals directly with the widows and widowers of the former employees. 

This comes after the arrest of four suspects,who are employees of the SAPS, attached to the Service Termination section.  All suspects were arrested this month in relation to alleged service payout fraud, corruption and appeared in court last week. 

Minisi said the arrests came as a result of Mr Kgolagano Mompati, the son of the late Warrant Officer Rankwane Mompati opening a case of fraud in Pretoria last month. 

He added that the suspects are accused of amongst other things organizing clients (false dependents or beneficiaries) and completing false documents such as a proof of relationship.
