A 65-year-old former Camps Bay SAPS station commander was arrested on charges of indecent assault and possession of child pornography.
Zbiegniew Andrzej Weclaw was arrested at his home on Tuesday, November 24 after officers found an unlicensed firearm and multiple boxes filled with home-made pornographic DVDs, some of which featured young boys.
“He was arrested on November 24 and appeared in court on the same day. He was released on bail. He will appear in court again on January 25 next year,” Police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa told IOL.
Weclaw’s son Daniel has also come forward about years of alleged sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his father as a child.
“Everyone would have known him for his outstanding service and saw him as this upstanding citizen in the community,” Daniel wrote on Facebook.
“It’s taken me 30 gruelling years filled with heartbreak and tears to eventually find a way to expose this evil monster. My father sexually assaulted me for years as a child starting when I was 6 years and continued until the end of primary school.”
What I am going to tell everyone is probably going to shock some of you, especially if you are not aware of what is…
Daniel explained in the post that he tried to report these incidences but he claims these were blocked by his father as a result of his connections to the police.
This has been exposed during South Africa’s 16 Days of Activism, which aims to raise awareness about the sexual violence epidemic in the country.
