Durban - Two Durban police officers have been arrested for allegedly demanding money to make a case disappear, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) said on Thursday.
The two warrant officers, based at Durban's Bayview police station in Chatsworth, were arrested on Wednesday night, IPID spokesman Moses Dlamini said.
They allegedly demanded R3 500 from a man facing charges of contravening a court order, assault, and pointing a firearm, in exchange for making the case disappear.
The man lodged a complaint with the IPID. The two officers, one of whom had 30 years service in the police, were expected to appear in the Chatsworth Magistrate's Court on Thursday on corruption charges. - Sapa
