NPA denies it selectively prosecutes cases

Luvuyo Mfaku, National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson, told CapeTalk's Stephen Grootes that the NPA is not in shambles and that assertions that the NPA is selective in its prosecutions are untrue.

Grootes asked Mfaku to concede that there is indeed a basis to believe there may be selective prosecution by the NPA, given that Supreme Court of Appeal judgments have challenged NPA rulings.

The NPA is not in shambles. People must not just throw words loosely in order to erode public confidence in the criminal justice system.

Grootes challenged this saying the NPA does select which cases to go to court, citing the Richard Mdluli case, where the NPA withdrew charges despite Supreme Court of Appeal judgments claiming a basis for prosecution.

There is a basis on which to believe there is selective prosecution by the courts of the NPA.
