Three Ekurhuleni metro police officers yesterday brought an application in the Johannesburg high court for a restraining order against their chief, Robert McBride, pictured.
Judge Moroa Tsoka was hearing the application late yesterday afternoon.
According to court documents, the notice of motion and founding affidavits of the application were served on McBride's secretary on July 1.
The application is being brought by Superintendent Stanley Segathevan, Chief Superintendent Patrick Johnston and Superintendent Itumeleng Koko.
The three were part of a team that apparently removed McBride from the scene of a car crash in December.
They have reportedly been harassed and victimised since making statements about the incident.
Their legal representative said they were applying for a restraining order to prevent any further forms of harassment, intimidation and assault.
The order seeks to prevent McBride from coming within 100m of the three men.
Though McBride's lawyers were not in court, it is understood they had filed replying documents. - Sapa
