FOI 00188 - Legal case of Naude


Request:

Received:30 September 2019

PC Ian Naude was convicted earlier this year by a lawful court and sentenced to 25 years in prison for rape of an under-age girl. The convicted PC claimed innocence throughout the trial.

Some questions under the FOI legislation:

  1. Did the Police Federation fund the Legal costs of PC Naude?
  2. If the Police Federation did fund the costs:

- Did the Police Federation accept PC Naude's claims of innocence before the verdict of the trial?

- Does the Police Federation accept the verdict of the Court?

- If the verdict is not accepted, can that be explained?

- Did any member of the Police Federation provide good character reference at the trial?
