Head of Organised Crime Unit [+ 2 subordinates] arrested on Monday for drug trafficking [Why South Africa disgusts me]

NVDL: So you have the head of organised crime selling drugs to drug lords. That's a great way to fight crime...and another reason why this country - sick to its core - disgusts me.

The head of the Krugersdorp organised crime unit and two of his subordinates were arrested on Monday for charges related to drug trafficking, said Gauteng police.

"They would take some of the consignment [of seized drugs] from the scene of the crime and sell it to drug lords," said national spokesperson for crime intelligence Senior Superintendent Tummi Golding.

The three police officers, one a senior superintendent and the other captains, had allegedly been stealing from drugs which were seized at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

Golding called their arrest a victory against crime. Corrupt police officers would be "hunted down", she said. They betrayed those they had sworn to protect.
"We will root them out. We are not ashamed to name our own," she said. - Sapa
