Advocate Ismail Jamie says it's strange that Phiyega hasn't testified

1 June 2016 4:06 PM

Jamie told the Claassen Board of Inquiry that the National Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega, is not fit to hold office.

Advocate Ismail Jamie has argued that the suspended National Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega, is not fit to hold office.

Jamie said this while the evidence leaders in the board of inquiry in Riah Phiyega’s fitness to hold office closed their arguments on Wednesday.

According to EWN reporter, Gia Nicolaides, Jamie says the Claassen Board of Inquiry should look carefully at the evidence, because there are a lot of unanswered questions. And Phiyega's silence is damning.

He says her version at the Marikana Commission is not closeable, and yet she has the opportunity now to come forward and explain herself, in terms of where these orders came from.

Meanwhile, the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) has submitted an application to the inquiry calling for political influence to be taken into consideration.

Phiyega is facing the inquiry based on her involvement around the deadly mass shooting in Marikina in 2012.
