The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has brought a series of charges against former NPA head, Anwa Dramat, former Gauteng head of the Hawks, Shadrack Sibiya, and captain Lesley Maluleke.
At the same time, the NPA is reportedly charging its former head, Mxolisi Nxasana, for sexual harassment.
Stephen Grootes on Monday spoke to the executive secretary of the Council for the Advancement of the Constitution (CASAC), Lawson Naidoo, about what he makes of what is actually happening at the NPA.
A report prepared by Justice Zak Yacoob last year found that a full judicial inquiry into what is happening at the NPA needed to happen. Justice Yacoob did not get co-operation from some senior prosecutors at the NPA and was not able to come to full and firm findings and decisions. I think that what is happening now points to the urgency of that taking place. We really need to get to the bottom of what is happening at the NPA. I do think that the public perceptions of the NPA are being enhanced at the moment.— Lawson Naidoo, Executive secretary for the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution
