Johannesburg - A former police constable and two other accused who have been convicted of three murders will be sentenced by the North Gauteng High Court sitting in Potchefstroom on Tuesday.
Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) spokesperson Moses Dlamini said the trio were also convicted of attempted murder, assault with the intention to cause grievous bodily harm, kidnapping and defeating the ends of justice.
Another police constable was acquitted of all charges.
"The conviction and sentencing follow an investigation by IPID after the bodies of three murder suspects, allegedly tortured and executed by the police officers and their informants investigating the case, were found in an isolated area in Carletonville in May 2015."
Dlamini said two policemen went on the run after the murders were exposed. They were arrested after a manhunt that went on for a few weeks.
