Pretoria: 31 May 2021 - In light of the huge media and  public interest in the matter of Major General Jeremy Vearey, the South African Police Service can confirm that a sanction of dismissal imposed on the Major General was endorsed by the National Commisnsioner of the South African Police Service on Friday, 28 May 2021.

General Vearey was subjected to a disciplinary process following social media posts he made of messages and images between late last year and earlier this year and caused the same to be circulated via the social media network. 

Some of the messages were directed at the National Commissioner and contained words that were considered derogatory, offensive, insulting and disrespectful to the National Commissioner thus bringing the National Commissioner and the South African Police Service into disrepute.

These actions were considered a misconduct in terms of the SAPS Disciplinary Regulations and therefore warranted a departmental action.
