South African Civil Groups Welcome Police Unit Chief's Retirement

Berning Ntlemeza's contentious appointment as head of the Hawks police unit was ruled invalid by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, a decision that pleased the Helen Suzman Foundation and Freedom Under Law who challenged his assignment to the position. The civil groups hope his retirement will bring his appointment saga to a close.
