Corruption-busting cop offered millions to 'go away'

Cato Manor inquiry discredits police and reporters.

Having failed to railroad KZN Hawks boss Major General Johan Booysen into resigning by theatrically staging his arrest and arraignment on trumped up murder and racketeering charges – two years later a high court judge found the state had no credible evidence to support the charges  – and having then failed to get him sacked at a protracted disciplinary hearing where, instead the Commissioner of Police was seriously reprimanded for having a political agenda, the SAPS is now offering the corruption-busting cop millions to “quietly go away”.

This is a horrifying state of affairs. The good policemen are forced out to protect the careers of the corrupt, allowing South Africa to sink further into the criminal abyss. What is most disappointing is that 'The Sunday Times' journalists were complicit in furthering this deceit, something Noseweek was always clear about.
