The disgraced Port Elizabeth detective who was convicted of hiding her alleged lover – a wanted gang suspect – from police, has been officially promoted.

Detective Alicia Beeming, 34, was found criminally guilty of defeating the ends of justice in August last year after she allegedly had a relationship with a wanted man and then hid his whereabouts from her colleagues at the Gang Unit.

This week, Beeming’s name appeared on a final police promotion list – advanced from constable to sergeant – causing an uproar among police officers.
