Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
THE suspended Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) deputy director-general Sydney Selepe - who faces 135 charges of improprieties - has denied any acts of wrongdoing.
Speaking to Sowetan Selepe said every decision he had made was above board, and was approved by his department bosses.
In a recent ruling the Bargaining Council Arbitrator has ordered the department to allow Selepe back to work since his continued suspension - in its 11th month - was unfair.
Selepe confirmed to Sowetan yesterday that he was given the go-ahead to occupy his desk at the department's offices in Pretoria three weeks ago.
"I went back to work but I was prevented from working since the department indicated that I might intimidate witnesses to the charges I am facing.
"But I do not even know who these witnesses are," Selepe said.
"I was handed another letter extending my suspension on full salary."
Selepe said he was frustrated to be sitting at home earning about R934000 a year, when he was supposed to be back at his desk.
Department spokesperson Anil Singh is on record as saying: "The matter is . being handled as a disciplinary process and so the department cannot give details of the report."
