Some unrepentant South African police officials have now turned themselves into notorious  crime merchants by using the security service as a guise to shield  their illegal, atrocious and abominable  deals. Some of their criminal involvement now transcends the borders of the country into other countries of the world.

A South African police officer has been arrested at an airport with heavy kilogram  of hard and illicit  drug possession.

Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) spokesman Nelson Kgwete said the police officer was arrested at São Paulo–Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo.

Kgwete said the South African consulate in São Paulo is working with the Brazilian authorities after the arrest was made by the Brazilian police and Interpol.

Kgwete could not confirm when the arrest was made‚ what drugs the police official was carrying or where the official was flying to.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo and Hawks spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi referred questions to Dirco.
