Reaction Unit SA says it's fighting the move.  

Regulators announced yesterday that RUSA had been suspended with immediate affect in the wake of alleged misconduct.

He says they've approached the courts and have also opened a case of corruption.

Linda Mbana who is with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority - says they've received numerous complaints about RUSA's conduct and how some reaction units treat people.

"We welcome that as SIRA. It is within their right to do so and we will be happy if we can know who is corrupt and who isn't. We are more than willing to listen to whatever they will bring forward," she said.
