The Helen Suzman Foundation (HSF) has launched an urgent application to overturn the suspension of Hawks commander lieutenant general, Anwa Dramat – as well as the appointment of the acting head, major general, Berning Ntlemeza.
Police Minister, Nathi Nhleko purported to suspend Dramat on 23 December 2014 and appointed Ntlemeza to act in his stead.
In papers filed at the Pretoria high court, HSF director, Francis Antonie, argues: “The minister’s decisions are clearly unlawful. The minister does not have the power to suspend the national head in the manner in which he has purported to do.”
