Forensic investigator Paul O’Sullivan, who was arrested in Centurion, Johannesburg, yesterday was released from police holding cells late last night.
AfriForum’s Willie Spies says the police contravened a court order, that O’Sullivan had to be given 48 hours’ notice of his arrest.
“O’Sullivan was released just before 00h00 last night after we secured another court order, that he be released,” Spies tweeted.
O’Sulliven’s been in the news, after making several allegations against acting national police commissioner, Kgomotso Pahlane. He is being investigated by the Independant Police Investigative Directorate.
“We will be moving forward now with a case of contempt of court against the police,” O’Sullivan said in a video posted on Twitter.
He added that he was arrested after being surrounded by at least 10 police vehicles.
