Six Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officers were arrested on Thursday for allegedly soliciting a bribe of R20 000 from a shop owner in Johannesburg…

“They demanded a R20 000 bribe, the shop owner gave them R5 000 and would pay the balance later,” JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said in a statement on Thursday.

The foreign national who was allegedly caught trying to sell a fake ID on December 2, paid the officers R5 000 and agreed to settle the full bribe amount at a later stage.

The shop owner then lodged a complaint with the JMPD internal affairs unit and the South African Police Service.

The businessman is currently being investigated for fraud and is yet to be arrested.
