Breytenbach lashes out over suspension

By Sapa | Jun 08, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 13 ]

Suspended National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach accused her seniors of ulterior motives.

According to the newspaper, Breytenbach believes her suspension -- by acting National Director of Public Prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba -- was motivated by a desire to shield former crime intelligence head Lt-Gen Richard Mdluli.

The NPA have denied this, attributing it to her conduct relating to cases allocated to her.

Breytenbach told the paper: "[Jiba's] real purpose was to stop me from prosecuting a senior police officer [Mdluli]... on charges of fraud and corruption".

The Witness reported that Breytenbach, in a letter to Jiba, said that Mdluli and his co-accused Colonel Heine Barnard appeared to be receiving preferential treatment and were not being subjected to the same treatment as others in the police who faced similar allegations.

This was after specialised commercial crimes unit head Lawrence Mrwebi withdrew charges against them, despite a decision by the Pretoria director of public prosecution Sibongile Mzinyathi that there was a prima facie case.

Breytenbach warned Jiba that this could create an impression that Mrwebi was biased or being influenced, which could have implications for the reputation of the NPA.

@ Shredder. Many skelms and conmen use this trick to hide behind. This one in particular is clearly putting up a front. It is not normal to walk around with a smile the whole time, especially when you are the subjest od such serious allegations.

Watch our president - he uses the same trick. When he is asked a difficult question, he first puts on that chuckling laugh for a few minutes ( while the brain is furioulsy thinking how to get out of the situation) and then gives his response.

Beware the man who laughs too much !

Call me stupid, naive, innocent, whatever, but I just cannot understand how people are getting away with all this skop, skiet en donder stuff.
People are getting away with fraud, corruption, and some even murder, and the cases are dropped on a technicality. Or even worse, without reason.
What are we in this country? A banana republic where everything goes? (Better not to answer that one.)
