A 65-year-old former Camps Bay SAPS station commander who has bee accused of indecent assault and possession of child pornography was found dead in his Vredehoek residence on Tuesday 7 September.
Zbiegniew Andrzej Weclaw, 65, was station commander of Camps Bay SAPS for 21 years .
He was arrested at his home last year in November after officers found an unlicensed firearm and multiple boxes filled with home-made pornographic DVDs, some of which featured young boys.
At the time Weclaw’s son Daniel came forward about years of alleged sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his father as a child.
He wrote on Facebook that he was sexually assaulted for years, beginning at the age of 6-years-old until the end of primary school.
Daniel said he had attempted to report the abuse many times, however all his efforts were thwarted by his father’s connections within the police force.
According to Daniel his father was found lying dead in the bath but with clothes on.
“He was apparently dead for a while,” he said.
Police spokesperson André Traut confirmed that a death inquest has been registered.
“The death of a man in his late 60s is being investigated after his body was discovered in his Vredehoek flat late on Tuesday night,” said Traut.
