NPA says though case against Phahlane provisionally withdrawn, it's not the end

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has had to withdraw a case against former acting national police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane , his wife Beauty and car dealer Durandt Snyman after their application for a postponement was denied.

The group faced charges of fraud and corruption.

Joanne Joseph spoke to NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane to find out more.

Mjonondwane says this is not the end of the case.

We were left with no choice but to provisionally withdraw the matter pending further investigations, so once those investigations are concluded we will be re-enrolling the matter.

Phindi Mjonondwane, NPA spokesperson

At this point we can't say the exact period when we will be finalising the investigation.
