I moved to make sure all people are prosecuted - Adv Gerrie Nel

Advocate Gerrie Nel says he is joining AfriForum's private prosecution unit to ensure that all people are equal before the law.

Nel announced that he was leaving the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) after 36 years serving as a key partner in the criminal justice system.

There is a perception [of selective prosecution] and we will have to investigate if the perception is true.

Advocate Gerrie Nel

What it means is that other people get prosecuted for certain crimes, and others don't.

Advocate Gerrie Nel

Our main focus for this unit and my main focus for having moved is to make sure that all people are equal before the law.
