The Democratic Alliance said the Fitness Board of
Inquiry probe into the misconduct and criminal records over a thousand SAPS
staff was done without the requisite authority.
The inquiry was established by the National Police
Commissioner Riah Phiyega to investigate criminality with the SAPS.
DA MP of police Dianne Kohler Barnard said Phiyega
needs to re-establish the inquiry under the correct provisions.
“We call on Phiyega to urgently clean up
her latest mess by re-establishing the boards of inquiry under the correct
provisions of the SAPS disciplinary regulations.
It is now time to put the quality of our
policing first, and get the best possible police commissioner into the position
as soon as possible.” Barnard added.
