popcruThe Citizen reports that former acting national police commissioner Lieutenant-General Kgomotso Phahlane on Friday appeared in the High Court in Pretoria to oppose an application of leave to appeal brought by the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) and four of its members.  

This followed a judgment on 30 June when Popcru, the union’s secretary Steve Matsemela, and three other members were ordered to pay Phahlane R350,000 compensation in a defamation case.  The court also ordered them to tender a public and written apology to be published in leading newspapers by the end of August.  Popcru and the other members had alleged there was corruption within the forensic services under Phahlane’s leadership, which they said dated back to 2012.  Kgomotso’s and Popcru’s applications were postponed until later this month.
