Ipid submits last docket in Marikana probe


Police surround fallen miners after they opened fire during clashes near a platinum mine in Marikana on August 16, 2012.

JOHANNESBURG – The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) says it has submitted the last docket in the Marikana probe.

The docket was initially submitted in April but was returned with further instructions from the NPA.

Ipid's probe looks into the fatal shooting of 34 miners by police in Marikana in 2012.

The directorate says the reconstruction of the scene as set out by the Farlam Commission was the only missing element.

Ipid also says its request for funds from the treasury was unsuccessful.

The NPA will now decide whether or not charges will be brought against those implicated.
