AN Independent Police Investigation Directorate official has been nabbed for fraud.
The 44-year-old official appeared before the Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
HAWKS spokesperson captain Lucy Dineo Sekgotodi said the man was arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigating unit.
She said it is alleged that in 2014, the official allegedly defrauded his employer (IPID) by submitting fraudulent kilometers claims with regard to official trips he undertook.
Sekgotodi said IPID lost just over R20 000 from these apparent false claims.
He has been granted R3000 bail and is expected to appear again on the 24 May.
