State prosecutor Wendy Greef said the matter was being withdrawn on the instructions of acting KwaZulu-Natal Director of Public Prosecutions advocate Moipone Noko.

She did not provide further reasons.

Panday and Madhoe were accused of attempting to bribe KwaZulu-Natal Hawks' boss Major-General Johan Booysen.

The pair allegedly offered Booysen R2 million to backdate a report on an investigation into accommodation tenders worth R60m. - Sapa
