Minister Nhleko’s decision remains in place

An application by Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) head Robert McBride for an interdict against his suspension is not urgent, North Gauteng High Court ruled on Wednesday.

According to News 24 the matter has thus been struck off the roll, Eyewitness News reported.

The ruling means that Police Minister Nathi Nhleko’s decision to suspend McBride remains in place.

McBride went to court last week seeking an urgent interdict against Nhleko’s decision to suspend him.

The suspension related to an Ipid report which exonerated Hawks head Anwa Dramat of the illegal rendition of five Zimbabweans in 2010, reported News24.
