PTA police use tip-offs to solicit bribes


493

A Pretoria policeman on Tuesday told Eyewitness News how corrupt colleagues at the Sunnyside police station use information obtained from the community to solicit bribes from drug dealers.

Earlier, an Eyewitness News investigation exposed an organised sex and drug trade ring led by Nigerian rackets. They operate from hijacked buildings and are apparently free from police interference by paying bribes.

The officer said that complaints by the community are never investigated.

“They will do as they are investigating and then they will go to the drug lords,” he said. “Then they get a bribe and then the complaint doesn’t go anywhere.”
