General Riah Phiyega’s legal team has hit back at Lindela Mashigo, former police communications officer.
The team says he released a media invite before the national police commissioner addressed the nation, which had already described the police’s conduct.
They also said Mashigo failed to admit that he too, along with Captain Dennis Adriao, made changes to the final media statement, before Phiyega made further changes.
Phiyega's legal team was cross-examining Mashigo.
Mashigo testified that the suspended national police commissioner dictated changes to a media statement released a day after the mass shooting in Marikana.
The Claassen Board of Inquiry was established by President Jacob Zuma to find out whether Phiyega and senior police managers had tried to conceal their involvement in the 2012 Marakana massacre.
There are no more witnesses to be called at the Inquiry. Closing arguments will begin in June.
