Phahlane says documents were seized illegally from his home

Former Acting National Police Commissioner, Khomotso Phahlane alleges that documents were seized illegally from his home.

This follows police watchdog, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid)’s raid of his properties and those of his alleged accomplices.

Phahlane is implicated in fabricating a case against IPID boss, Robert McBride.

Phahlane was suspended in June after he was accused of fraud and corruption for allegedly taking kickbacks to secure SAPS tenders.

He has described the allegations against him as his enemies’ desperate attempt to bring him down.

“None of the documents referred to were supposed to be taken because those are documents that form part of our case. On, it is a set of email correspondences from Paul O’Sullivan proving that he continues to be involved in spearheading the Ipid investigation. The second set which was taken is financial transactions when McBride was chief with irregularities. There is nothing damning to suggest that there is fabrication. There can’t be fabrication when the issues are already part of the court processes that we are all engaged in,” says Phahlane.
