The DA welcomes the latest announcement from IPID that after weeks of stalling, the blue light bullies will be processed at Sandton Police Station today and appear in Randburg Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.

This comes after the DA lodged a complaint with IPID which prompted IPID’s investigation.

Independent Police Investigative Directorate spokesman Robbie Raburabu said that the eight cops would be processed at Sandton Police Station on Sunday. The Blue Light Bullies must now be treated like all other violent criminals following this violent and unprovoked attack. The criminal justice system must perform its duties without fear or favour.

We will monitor this case very closely, as it signifies the importance of holding those in positions of power accountable for their actions. The safety and well-being of our citizens should never be compromised, and we trust that the legal process will ensure that justice prevails for the victims and their families.

As a society, we must condemn any abuse of power and continue to work towards a just and fair South Africa for all.

The DA will remain steadfast in advocating for the rights and safety of all citizens, ensuring that those who engage in such despicable behavior face the full consequences of their actions.
