The Gardee family has filed an urgent application at the Pretoria High Court against South African Police Services.
According to the family statement, the application stems from the alleged incompetence of the Detective Unit. The family states its many efforts to assist the police, but it has proven to be vain.
“This is because of inexplicable reasons and dismal failures by the Detective Unit of SAPS. Now that the prosecution has announced additional charges of conspiracy to murder, the case assumes all the hallmarks of an organised crime. These investigations are within in the competency of The Hawks,” read the statement.

It further read that the incompetence of the Detective Unit, has kept the family in the dark. “This is treasonous, to say the least.” The family requests from the court an order compelling the transfer of the docket to The Hawks. “The family attorneys on record in this litigation are MM Mashele Attorneys led by Advocate Gillian Benson from Maisels Chambers.”
