Understanding the IPID Mandate for Addressing Police Corruption
"The workshop objective was to explore how the soon-to-be-established IPID should interpret and engage with its mandate. This report presents the inputs and deliberations of the five workshop sessions. In the first session, three researchers spoke about the nature and extent of police corruption in South Africa and offered overviews on how to address the challenge. The second session heard insights from people with direct experience of investigating corruption in the public sector and the police. In the third session, the ICD Investigations head Tommy Tshabalala reflected on the successes and difficulties experienced by the ICD in its corruption investigations in previous years. During the fourth session, participants split up into six groups, and each group was given a hypothetical scenario. In the fifth and final session Dr Monique Marks, summed up and reflected on the key issues raised in the workshop."
