Cape Town - National Police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo has rubbished reports that Western Cape detective boss Maj Gen Jeremy Vearey is subject to an investigation for kidnapping, torture and defeating the ends of justice.
This comes after a report emerged over the weekend suggesting that senior officials in the Western Cape, including Brig Cass Goolam, the station commander in Mitchells Plain are under investigation.
Naidoo said there was no investigation but an “analysis” of an old case involving senior officials in the province.
Naidoo said: “In the Western Cape, there is a national intervention taking place where there have been charges and counter-charges investigated.
“I cannot tell you that there are investigations being conducted, because people have been opening charges and counter-charges against each other since 2009. We are now analysing all of them, this doesn’t mean that there is an investigation per se,” said Naidoo.
