The Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team has arrested a 48-year-old prosecutor after he gladly accepted R6,000 bribe to make a case disappear in Thohoyandou, Limpopo.

“The suspect who operates from the Thohoyandou magistrate’s court was arrested on Friday after he allegedly demanded R6,000 gratification from a suspect who was charged with reckless and negligent driving. The money was meant to make the case disappear.

“The alleged kickback was reported to the Hawks and a sting operation was initiated which culminated in the prosecutor’s arrest soon after accepting the money,” the Hawks said on Saturday.

The prosecutor is set to appear in the Thohoyandou magistrate’s court on Monday to face charges of demanding and accepting bribes.

The provincial head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, Maj-Gen Thobeka Jozi applauded the investigating team.
