He has been interdicted to make way for investigations into his conduct.

The officer was captured in a video in front of a drinking bar with heavy eyes and legs.

The commentary over the video accused the officer of denting the image of the Service and could have been recruited on protocol, calling for his dismissal.

But the Service said the suitability of the officer to remain in office or not will be based “on the outcome of investigations and the recommendation of the Police Medical Board”.
