It appears that Berning Ntlemeza, according to his legal advice, still believes that he is the head of the Hawks, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.
Ntlemeza reported for duty on Monday morning, despite the Pretoria High Court order that his appointment be set aside.
Bateman says Ntlemeza allegedly barged into a management meeting this morning and ordered the head of supply chain management to give him a state vehicle.
Police Minister Fikile Mbalula held a press briefing condemning Ntlemeza's actions and reiterating that he is no longer the head of the Hawks.
Mbalula has instructed Ntlemeza to return the state vehicle and a Hawks-issued cellphone.
The police minister has also asked acting police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane to find Ntlemeza and recover the state assets.
[Phahlane 's been ordered to] recover the state vehicle and the cellphone by today - and if needs be, follow through process of the law and issue a warrant of arrest.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
He [Mbalula] is quite clear and considers Ntlemeza to be in unlawful possession of this vehicle and cellphone.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
