Suspended NPA prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach's motor car was shot at two weeks ago, Beeld reported on Tuesday.

Breytenbach, regional head of the National Prosecuting Authority in Gauteng's specialised commercial crime unit, said she was shot at on April 11 on the N14 highway near an offramp.

She was on her way to her home in Centurion.

Two BMW motorcycles tried last Wednesday to force her off the road while she was on her way to the gym.

She reported both incidents to the Hawks but not to the police because she could not see who her assailants were.

“If it was an attempt to intimidate me, it was not successful,” she said.

Breytenbach was issued with a letter of suspension on Monday with the NPA saying the charges “relate to her conduct in handling one of the cases allocated to her”.

The NPA has refused to elaborate on the charges.

She heads the NPA's specialised commercial crimes unit in Pretoria.

According to reports, she was responsible for the NPA's arms deal probe and the fraud case against crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli.

NPA spokesman Mthunzi Mhaga said there was no link between Breytenbach's suspension and Mdluli.

“We dismiss those insinuations as baseless.”

Breytenbach was issued with a notice of intention to suspend her in February. - Sapa
