THE policeman killed in the mysterious high-speed chase which also claimed the life of a Johannesburg businessman, faced a complaint of harassment.
Police yesterday confirmed the complaint and an inquiry into Constable Goodman Lubisi for the loss of his firearm.
The confirmation comes after the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) this week said it had yet to locate the docket into the crash which killed Lubisi and businessman Areff Haffejee in Rosebank, north of Johannesburg.
"We have been told that it is with provincial police officers, but we do not have it," IPID spokesman Moses Dlamini said.
The docket contains information on what led to the crash.
A myriad of questions have emerged from the crash, including what Lubisi was doing in the car when it crashed.
Police at the time alleged that Haffejee was trying to escape from Sandton officers after they found dagga in his car during a roadblock.
They have yet to explain what happened to the dagga or why Lubisi did not use his firearm to stop Haffejee.
Police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said there was an internal investigation against the deceased officer.
"In 2010, the Sandton station commander received a complaint of harassment against Lubisi and other members.
"An internal investigation was conducted and the members were warned in terms of internal processes. The complainant did not open a case.
"In relation to a firearm, a member opened a case of robbery in Alexandra. No negligence was found on the part of the deceased."
Dlamini said the docket would be forwarded to IPID.
