The Presidency has released a statement saying it has not received the report from Claassen Board of Inquiry about the findings on whether suspended National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega is unfit to hold office.
President Jacob Zuma appointed the commission last year in September to investigate Phiyega's conduct during the 2012 Marikana massacre.
The City Press has reported that the report has found that Phiyega is unfit to hold office and recommends that she be fired.
Phiyega's legal team also say they have not received the report, and will approach the Claassen Board of Inquiry for clarity on the matter.

If The City Press report is correct, Phiyega will be the third national police commissioner not to finish the term in office, and found guilty of misconduct.
Senior researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, Johan Burger, says findings of misconduct against top cops reflect badly on the police and will have a negative effect on public's confidence in police.
