Johannesburg - The National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) Shaun Abrahams and his deputy Nomgcobo Jiba did not breach the law when she was seen on multiple occasions visiting the NPA’s offices, says the State attorney.
This is according to the state attorney Gosiame Peter Seleka who was responding to questions raised by Freedom Under Law (FUL) on why Abrahams had allowed Jiba to enter NPA headquarters when she was barred from doing so by a 2017 High Court ruling.
Last year Judge Billy Mothle granted an order that both Jiba and Specialised Commercial Crimes Unit head Lawrence Mrwebi had to face a disciplinary inquiry and they had to be suspended pending the outcome of the inquiries.
He, however, suspended the implementation of this, pending the outcome of the pair’s appeal proceedings to the Supreme Court of Appeals.
Judge Mothle ordered that both are prohibited from performing any functions relating to their offices in the NPA and may not enter the NPA’s offices, nor may they engage in any discussion concerning any pending cases under consideration by the NPA, pending the finalisation of their appeals before the SCA.
