Two Gauteng police station commanders have been arrested in connection with alleged gun license fraud. The two brigadiers face charges of fraud and corruption. This brings the number of people arrested in connection with these cases to 28. The others were arrested earlier this year. National police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo says that the two senior officers were arrested by the Western Cape Anti-Gang Unit.

They were assisted by the National Anti-Corruption Unit. The case relates to several dockets in the areas of Edenvale, Kempton Park and Norwood in Gauteng.

Naidoo says that the investigations into this case started three years ago, when it was found that security companies were involved in crimes of extortion in the Western Cape province relating to firearm applications in Gauteng. The two senior officers are expected in court tomorrow.
