Top cop's case postponed

THE case of a senior Germiston police officer accused of physically and verbally abusing an Ekurhuleni metro cop was again postponed at the Kempton Park magistrate's court yesterday.

Superintendent Jannie Dawson is charged with interfering with police duties, common assault and resisting arrest. It took four metro police officers to restrain and arrest him after he tried to arrest Mapule Podile, a metro cop.

Dawson had rushed to the scene in Kempton Park where his daughter was arguing with Podile over a traffic fine. His daughter had allegedly verbally abused Podile for fining her for a crack on her windscreen.

Podile said the woman called her a "black bitch" and that she was going to kill her. She allegedly threatened that her father would sort her out as he was a well-connected senior officer at Germiston police station.

Podile said Dawson reeked of alcohol when he arrived at the scene and wanted to arrest her for fining his daughter.

He fought off her partner, who called for backup.

The case will be heard on October 20 to allow Dawson's lawyer time to familiarise himself with it.
