JOHANNESBURG – Former State prosecutor and now Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament Glynnis Breytenbach says the Supreme Court of Appeal’s decision to reinstate Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi to the roll of advocates spells disaster for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

The Bloemfontein Supreme court ruled on Tuesday overturned the ruling in the High Court  which struck Jiba and Mrwebi from the roll of advocates.

The decision was related to how the pair handled the decision to withdraw the case against former head of Crime Intelligence, Richard Mdluli.

Breytenbach said she’s respects the court processes, but disagreed with the majority judgment, where it also reduced the sanction against Mrwebi who has been suspended for six months.

Jiba attorney said her client feels vindicated after the Supreme Court ruling, attorney Zola Majavu said the decision come at no surprise to them, “My client has always maintained her innocence, she is vindicated. I spoke to her as soon as the judgment was handed down and she is quite happy.”
