Paul O’Sullivan gets bail of R10,000 after Wednesday’s court appearance
He and his assistant are charged with impersonating an Ipid officer in a corruption probe by Ipid into police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane
Private forensic investigator Paul O’Sullivan has been released on R10,000 bail. O’Sullivan‚ who is caught in bitter feud between the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) and the national police commissioner‚ Lt-Gen Khomotso Phahlane‚ was ordered to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court earlier on Wednesday. He‚ along with his assistant Sarah-Jane Trent‚ have been charged with impersonating an Ipid officer in a corruption probe by the organisation into Phahlane. O’Sullivan was arrested on Monday‚ but was ordered to be released after police defied a court order that stated that he had to be given 48-hours notice of any impending arrest.
