Soko's death: Police, 4, suspended pending investigations

By FELIX CHAUDHARY

Update: 5:20PM FOUR police officers have been suspended pending further investigations in relation to the death of Vilikesa Soko.

Police Commissioner Ben Groenewald said once investigations were completed, the findings would be passed on to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

"At this stage, I will not release information about the identities of these officers because the criminal investigation is ongoing and all evidence is sub judice, meaning that it cannot be discussed publicly," he said.

However, I will say now that those involved will be subjected to the full force of law and once we have completed our investigation.

"I expect this to be very soon, but I want to stress to the public and especially to Vilikesa Soko's family that we are leaving no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of what happened."
