NATIONAL NEWS - The police officers who were caught on camera assaulting unidentified men are still on duty, as the Independent Police Investigative Directorate ((Ipid) scrambles to find the victims.
On Wednesday, a video of the officers assaulting two men made rounds on social media.
The video depicts one officer whipping a yet-to-be-identified man with a sjambok while another searches and slaps a second victim, in the presence of a third officer.
According to Ipid spokesperson Ndileka Cola, the officers were still on duty and awaiting their fate ahead of recommendations by the police watchdog.
“We are still working on finding the victims. We will then take their statements, those of eyewitnesses, and also the statements of the officers before we make the recommendations to the South African Police Services [Saps]” said Cola.
