Mdluli re-suspension a victory for common-sense

3 June 2012
Controversial SAPS spy boss Richard Mdluli was suspended for the third time today as the Johannesburg Labour Court overturned the bizarre order handed down on Friday which lifted his suspension.
The DA welcomes this common-sense judgment. The attempt by Mdluli and his legal representatives to undermine and abuse the judiciary has been stopped in its tracks.
Mdluli should be kept as far away as possible from South African Police Service offices until he has answered all the allegations against him, including murder, fraud and the looting of the R300-million SAPS Secret Fund.
Richard Mdluli must have his day in court to answer the allegations against him. The sooner this saga is brought to an end, the sooner the credibility of the police and crime intelligence can be restored.
