Whenever a police officer is implicated in a crime, a disciplinary hearing is key to restoring accountability and integrity within the service. In May, National Police Commissioner General Khehla Sitole admitted to Parliament that discipline management within the South African Police Service needed an overhaul. With police disciplinary hearings happening behind closed doors, could the procedures be manipulated to protect violent accused police officers from consequence? With unprecedented access to the recordings from one such hearing for murder, Carte Blanche investigates allegations that a disciplinary hearing whitewash led to the implicated officer being found not guilty.
