Suspended NPA prosecutor loses in court
A challenge by prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach against her suspension from the National Prosecuting Authority has failed
Johannesburg Labour Court Judge Hamilton Cele dismissed the application, and said no costs were ordered.
She was suspended as regional head of the specialised commercial crime unit on April 30, for conduct relating to cases allocated to her, the NPA said.
Breytenbach submitted in court papers that the NPA had "ulterior motives" when it suspended her.
Breytenbach's lawyer Andrew Redding said she believed acting National Director of Public Prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba suspended her in an attempt to protect former crime intelligence head Lieutenant-General Richard Mdluli.
