The new public protector says she will leave the dispute over the state capture report prepared by h.
The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) threatened yesterday to go to court to try and stop police from going ahead with a "massive" restructuring plan which includes police officers re-applying for their positions.
Popcru said it would launch a court application next week.
General secretary Abbey Witbooi said when they agreed to the restructuring plan, it was because it would have affected staff in area offices.
Meanwhile, a campaign of fear caused by police recruits with criminal records has lead Popcru to request a review of the recruitment policy for police reservists.
Witbooi said Johannesburg police station got a lot of bad publicity with police chasing after prostitutes.
"Those are not police. They are reservists. But because reservists are wearing blue uniforms, the public does not distinguish." -Sapa
