JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) says the Hawks is deliberately targeting its head, Robert McBride.
On Monday, McBride was ordered to submit a warning document to the Hawks.
The investigation relates to two separate incidents that allegedly both took place in 2006 while McBride was Ekurhuleni Metro Police chief.
However, Ipid says the charges are spurious and frivolous and that McBride has no plans to submit the document to the Hawks.
Last week, Gauteng Hawks head Prince Mokotedi laid charges against McBride, City of Johannesburg anti-corruption head Shadrack Sibiya, private investigator Paul O’Sullivan and a suspended police captain.
Ipid says it’s investigations against senior officials are touching a nerve.
