JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Hawks head Prince Mokotedi has opened a case at the Bedfordview police station against four people on a range of charges.

Mokotedi believes someone wants to assassinate him.

Those to be investigated include forensic investigator Paul O’Sullivan, former Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya, IPID head Robert McBride and SAPS Captain Candice Coetzee, currently on suspension for allegedly leaking classified information to O’Sullivan.

The Mail and Guardian reported on Tuesday that an affidavit was submitted to the police station by the Hawks boss. 

The charges include high treason, espionage, conspiracy to commit murder, corruption, tax evasion, immigration laws, defeating the ends of justice, and intimidation and harassment.

According to the affidavit, Mokotedi alleges the four conspired to murder him and Hawks boss lieutenant general Mthandazo Ntlemeza; implicate himself, Ntlemeza, and NPA head Shaun Abrahams in corruption and other criminal acts; mobilise for an 'Arab Spring' type of revolt in the country and destabilise the security forces in order to oust President Jacob Zuma. 

This is a developing story.
