Police Minister Fikile Mbalula is on Friday expected to outline the processes involved in the appointment of a new head for the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation.
A briefing is scheduled to take place at the Johannesburg Central police station.
The position was left vacant after Major-General Berning Ntlemeza was forced out in April following a ruling by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria that his appointment was irregular and unlawful.
He has since retired.
Lieutenant-General Yolisa Matakata was appointed the acting Hawks head.
