STATEMENT BY JUDGE JOHANN KRIEGLER, CHAIRPERSON OF FREEDOM UNDER LAW
Advocate Abrahams’s media conference today
The newly appointed National Director of Public Prosecutions, Adv Shaun Abrahams, held a media conference earlier today in the course of which he announced a decision to withdraw the prosecution of his deputy Adv Nomgcobo Jiba. The charges against her flow from findings of dishonesty against her by judges. This decision could have a material bearing on cases that have been brought by Corruption Watch and Freedom Under Law, who are accordingly asking for the reasons for the withdrawal. Once these reasons have been received, we shall review the situation.
