EWN reporter Barry Bateman, says there is still uncertainty about whether or not an appeal has been filed with the High Court in Pretoria, to argue the unfitness of Berning Ntlemeza to hold office as Head of The Hawks.
Bateman says the Minister of Police's spokesperson confirmed that they definitely have the intention to apply for leave to appeal.
The grounds they will reportedly be arguing is the belief that there has been judicial over reach.
A case will be made that the judiciary entered into the realms of executive decisions and that the appointment of the Hawks head was not to be reviewed by the courts.
They still seem to believe these are remarks that carry no weight.— Barry Bateman, EWN Reporter
Bateman says the department of police believes Ntlemeza wasn't afforded an opportunity to defend himself.
Commenting on the burglary of Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng’s offices, Bateman says there hasn't been any further leads on who may be responsible.
He says the building is quite secure despite the robbers gaining entry into the building.
The alarm was triggered, but by the time security arrived on the premises the robbers had already fled the scene.
The offices do border the highway so perhaps that was a getaway area they had chosen.— Barry Bateman, EWN Reporter
