Court rules that SANDF officials involved in Alex man murder be suspended
The High Court in Pretoria on Friday ruled that all officers implicated in the killing of an Alexandra man during a lockdown operation in the township should be placed on suspension.
Collins Khosa's death last month caused public outcry with members of the community calling for action against law enforcement officers alleged to have been involved.
His family took the matter to court demanding answers for his killing.
In handing down his ruling, Judge Hans Fabricius called for the publishing of a range of guidelines to inform how law enforcement officials should implement lockdown compliance.
