press release

KwaZulu-Natal — Eight suspects including five police officials aged between 30 and 50 from Hilton 10111 Call Centre, have been arrested for alleged corruption by the Hawks' Pietermaritzburg Serious Organised Crime and Crime Intelligence.

The eight were arrested on Thursday, 05 December 2019 after information surfaced in February 2018 that the police members were allegedly colluding with private ambulance services and tow truck companies.

The SAPS officials would allegedly provide information to the ambulance and tow truck companies regarding road accidents in the Pietermaritzburg area. These afforded the companies unfair advantage and prejudiced other service providers. In return it is alleged the suspects received inducements from the companies.

The eight suspects are due to appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate's Court today, 06 December 2019. More arrests are expected.
