Johannesburg - Former Ipid boss Robert McBride has told the Zondo commission he believes the Werksmans Attorneys report, used to bring criminal charges against him, was rushed and came to the wrong conclusions regarding the Zimbabwean rendition matter.
McBride resumed his testimony on Friday and explained how he was suspended by former police minister Nathi Nhleko for allegedly falsifying a second report into the Zimbabwean rendition matter.
McBride was suspended in March 2015 and he was eventually charged with defeating the ends of justice following the recommendation of the Werksmans investigation and final report. He was charged along with two Ipid investigators.
On Thursday McBride explained that when he was appointed as Ipid head in 2014 he decided to re-evaluate the Zimbabwe rendition matter.
The matter involved former Hawks head Anwa Dramat and former Gauteng Hawks head Shadrick Sibiya, who had been accused of unlawfully handing over Zimbabwean fugitives to the Zimbabwean police in 2010. The suspects later died in custody.
