Johannesburg - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has overturned a High Court ruling that ruled that Advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi should be struck off the roll of advocates.
Justice Connie Mocumie delivered the judgment in Bloemfontein on Tuesday.
Jiba served as the deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) and Mrwebi was the head of Specialised Commercial Crime Unit.
The two were struck of the roll in September 2016 in a damming judgment delivered by Judge Fancis Legodi who found that the pair were not fit to hold office.
They were on suspension pending the SCA appeal.
The main high court application was brought by the General Council of the Bar of South Africa (GCB), who motivated for the pair’s removal based on several controversial cases they handled.
