DECEMBER 21, 2015

The Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigation, otherwise known as the Hawks, has reportedly confirmed the arrest and subsequent release of Eastern Cape Police Communications Head, Brigadier Marinda Mills, on charges of corruption and forgery.

According to Eyewitness News, Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said Mills was arrested on Friday for signing and approving alleged fraudulent travel documents, following a 10-month investigation by the Hawks’ anti-corruption unit.

"Apparently she signed a fraudulent claim for someone who was supposed to attend a meeting. The person then claimed for the trip and she signed it off, knowing that the person did not go to the meeting," Muluadzi said.

He added that Mills is due to appear in court in February 19th after being released on warning.
