Johannesburg - Suspended deputy national director of public prosecutions (NDPP) Nomgcobo Jiba and head of the specialised commercial crimes unit Lawrence Mrwebi are both liars who should not be prosecutors.
Constitutional Court documents seen by Independent Media show that the General Council of the Bar (GCB) wants Jiba and Mrwebi disbarred.
Director of public prosecutions (North Gauteng) Sibongile Mzinyathi has escaped the wrath of the GCB but he opposes the bid to have him declared a “paper lawyer”.
“We submit that the findings of dishonesty are well-founded, and provide an ample basis justifying and in fact requiring the removal of Jiba and Mrwebi from the roll,” read the heads of argument filed on behalf of the GCB.
In the GCB’s heads of argument, the bar states that Jiba and Mrwebi were wrong to abandon the prosecution of former national police crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli.
