The Hawks in the Northern Cape have arrested an immigration officer working for the Department of Home Affairs in Postmasburg.
The suspect was arrested on Wednesday for contravening the prevention and combating of Corrupt Activities Act 12 of 2004.
He appeared at Postmasburg Magistrates’ Court on a charge of corruption.
A complainant was brought by an immigrant who was nearly robbed by the arrested immigrant officer.
“It is alleged that during June 2019, the complainant was arrested with other illegal immigrants due to invalid documents and he was later released after it was established that his documents were correct. The other illegal immigrants were kept in custody as they awaited judgement from Postmasburg Magistrate court.
"Upon judgement, they were given fines of R600.00 each and were set to be deported after payment unless they rectify their documents,” says Hawks spokesperson Nomthandazo Mnisi.
