Johannesburg - Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi has detailed how confidential documents belonging to the NPA and the Hawks landed in the hands of Bosasa officials.
Agrizzi told the Zondo commission on Thursday how NPA bosses, Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi, kept Bosasa informed regarding the progress of a corruption investigation into Bosasa.
The NPA had been handed the investigation report compiled by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) in 2009 and were investigating the possibilities of charges. Agrizzi handed over a series of confidential NPA documents to the commission.
He was questioned about the documents which he said he had obtained from Bosasa before his departure. These NPA documents referenced the investigation into tender contracts received by Bosasa. Some of the documents were marked "draft charge sheet on Bosasa", "Progress on Bosasa investigation". These documents were compiled by prosecutors from the NPA.
The former commissioner of correctional service Linda Mti would obtain the information from Jiba and Jackie Lephinka, who was Jiba's assistant, said Agrizzi. The two would receive cash bribes in exchange for the information.
