Dramat placed on leave after agreement with Nhleko

Suspended Hawks boss Anwa Dramat has been placed on leave following an agreement he reached with police minister Nkosinathi Nhleko, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.

“General Dramat and the minister agreed that the general will be on leave while they try to finalise other processes,” Nhleko’s spokesperson Musa Zondi said.

“They met on January 29 and they agreed that the general will be on leave while their lawyers try to come to some sort of agreement.”

Judge Bill Prinsloo on Friday ruled in the high court in Pretoria that his January 23 order allowing Dramat to return to work remained in effect, irrespective of any other appeal that may be brought.

Prinsloo also ruled that Nhleko’s decision to appoint Major-General Berning Ntlemeza as acting national head of the Hawks was unlawful and invalid.

Dramat was suspended on December 23, pending a probe into his alleged involvement in the illegal rendition of four Zimbabweans in November 2010. – Sapa
