Disgraced Port Elizabeth detective Alicia Beeming appeared in the Port Elizabeth High Court on Thursday, where it was expected that she would be sentenced, after being convicted of hiding a wanted gangster from the police.

The case was, however, postponed to 10 October.

Beeming(34) was found guilty of defeating the ends of justice in August 2018 after she allegedly had a relationship with a wanted male suspect.

She allegedly had a relationship with gangster Hans Jordaan and then hid his whereabouts from her colleagues at the Provincial Gang Investigation Unit.

The former detective had access to both covert and overt intelligence, as well as case dockets investigated by the Gang Task Team unit, all privileged information.

Beeming had information on the whereabouts of Jordaan, but kept silent about it, while her unit was searching for him in connection with an attempted murder charge related to a gang shooting in 2014.
