The Claassen Board of Inquiry into the fitness of Riah Phiyega to hold office granted a request for her to be questioned beyond Farlam Commission of Inquiry.
Phiyega was suspended from her position of National Police Commissioner in 2015 following questions about her leadership and conduct during the 2012 Marikana Massacre.
702's John Robbie spoke to EWN Reporter, Gia Nicolaides, regarding the issue.

Here we have the suspended National Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega, who's actually sitiing in what's being described as a disciplinary process.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN Reporter
She has to answer questions back from four years ago and also Judge Niel Claassen says that she'll have to ansuwer questions beyond the Farlam Commission of Inquiry.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN Reporter
She didn't speak yesterday, it was just her lawyers who were arguing about the terms of reference and what she can be scrutinised about.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN Reporter
There's still about a year and a half remaining of Phiyega's term in her position. There are about 14 witnesses expected to testify at the Inquiry.
She seemed rather confident about going forward saying that she wants to clear her name. She couldn't say if she wanted to continue in her role as the National Police Commissioner if the particular Board of Inquiry rules in her favour.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN Reporter
