Pretoria - Former deputy national police commissioner Hamilton Hlela appeared in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Tuesday on four counts of corruption.

He handed himself to the police on Tuesday, said Hawks spokesman Captain Paul Ramaloko.

He was released on a warning and the matter was postponed to June 27.

Hlela, 57, is accused of accepting over R52 000 in kickbacks from a service provider during his term of office.

Between 2008 to 2009 the money was allegedly used to pay for family leisure trips, university and school fees.

Hlela retired from the police in 2010. He was responsible for the supply chain management division at the police national head office in Pretoria.
