Paul O'Sullivan believes police commissioner erred

Private investigator Paul O'Sullivan insists Acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane erred when he used a police service provider to do work for him in his private capacity.

Police watchdog IPID raided Phahlane's home yesterday, following allegations that the company received kickbacks after installing a sound system worth R80 000 in Phalane's home.

"In my opinion, any right thinking person...if you are a Lieutenant General in the police, you don't go appointing somebody in their private capacity that is receiving R100 million in public funds, which you are in control don't go then and appoint that person as your interior designer on your house," says O'Sullivan.

Phahlane, however, insists he paid for the sound system out of his own pocket.

"The person who is referred to as a service provider to the police is also in another capacity an interior designer. I have sought their services as an interior designer at a personal level. It was incumbent of me to directly pay for those services," says Phahlane.
