Johannesburg - Prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach believes her suspension will have a detrimental effect on commercial crime in South Africa, Eyewitness News reported on Wednesday.
The NPA suspended Breytenbach last year. It charged that mining company Imperial Crown Trading had complained about her handling of a criminal case against it, and that she was too close to criminal lawyer Mike Hellens.
Breytenbach contends she was suspended for not wanting the fraud charges against former police crime intelligence head Lt-Gen Richard Mdluli withdrawn.
The hearing resumes at the NPA's headquarters in Silverton, east of Pretoria, on May 6.
